The sharp ridge which climbs to Mullaghnarakill between Coomaglaslaw and Coomnacronia provides one of the most challenging walks in the Glenbeigh Horseshoe area. The lower part of this ridge is known locally as Drom an Bháid or Bottom of the Boat, from its resemblance to an upturned keel.   Mullaghnarakill is the 169th highest place in Ireland.

I climbed this peak about 5 years ago with a couple of friends by the obvious ridge coming from the NE which rises up between the lakes of Coomnacronia and Coomaglaslaw and makes straight for the summit. I mustn't have had my camera with me that day, as the scenery was very dramatic and the weather fine, but I've no pics to show for it. I notice that nobody has commented on this route on this page. I guess a lot of people do this peak as part of a longer walk taking in many or all of the peaks on the Glenbeigh Horseshoe, but I'm surely not the only one who has spotted this striking ridge and felt compelled to take up the challenge. pdonnelly points out that a short, sharp circuit of Coomaglaslaw is also a possibility, and one I would throughly recommend. Your best bet is to do the tougher ridge up to Mullaghnarakill on the way up, and then to descend via the airy but easy arete (called Keamconneragh) to Coomreagh, finishing in Coomasaharn.
