A group from the Sliabh Luachra Hillwalking Club, led by Paul Tempan, tackled Caherbarnagh and Claragh Mountain on Sunday January 25th. The day was fine and we had excellent views west towards the Reeks and Slieve Mish and east towards the Galtees and Ballyhoura Mountains. The stretch between Caherbarnagh and Claragh was rather longer than some people imagined when this walk was conceived 2 weeks earlier in the Red Fox Inn! The highlights of this walk are the views down to Gortavehy Lough from Stookeen and the summit of Claragh (ramparts of a Bronze Age hillfort and a very fine viewpoint). The cliffs near Gortavehy Lough are best appreciated from near Gortavehy Lough on the Duhallow Way, but you need to do this as a separate walk.
