Picture: The fence to Foilastookeen
A new summit in the heart of the Shehys
by madfrankie  22 Jun 2015
Parked at a a double gate at W054 647 A, just north of Gowlane Bridge on the road west of Conigar in the Borlin Valley (space for a single car). Hopping the gate, a farm track pointed the way uphill for a short distance. I aimed for the left of a low band of cliff on the horizon. A handy fence provided a guide over Conigar’s NE shoulder. Descending on the other side, I passed tiny Lough Glas, and continuing alongside a fence, passing the even smaller (and curiously named) Lough Namrat. At this point I realised there were trail markers for a track running alongside the fence - the Beara Breifne Way - as a small sign later indicated. And several hundred metres ahead I could see another walker crossing the summit of Foilastookeen.
It wasn't too difficult a climb to the summit - a broad area of heather and rocky outcrops. And grand views, especially north where steep cliffs drop down to Gougane Barra.
Returned by the same route, ascending back over the shoulder of Conigar and made the easy descent back to the car in about 2 hours. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1448/comment/18159/
