Laghtshanaquilla a mountain worth naming!

I took the second exit for Cahir heading south on the M8. I took the old N8 passed the firing range and the bridge over the Kilcoran river before turning right at the crossroads.
I passed a B&B and the road turned to track, I stayed going until a sheep pen where the track veered sharp left into forestry. I followed the track until a new mast (in the usual sitka spruce) where I parked. I walked back eastwards to a crossroads in the forestry where I turned left uphill. I went to the end of the track where I crossed over a low wire fence.
There I found a rough track which I followed downhill to a sheep enclosure. This is when I saw the sheep pen I had passed enroute to the mast! I followed this rough track, which was sludgy to say the least, along the forestry until its end.
I had, on several occasions, need to go on its 'banks' as there was water lying on it. I followed the Kilcoran river staying to its west side before I branched along sheep tracks to the slopes of Laghtshanaquilla. I went uphill through heather, fraughan bushes and rushes via sheep tracks. When the ground got hard underfoot,the going got lighter and I headed basically straight for the summit.
I found a cairn shy of the summit and thought it a bit small but didn't delay as I headed to the rock strewn summit. The rocks were conglomerate of stone. I had a well deserved tea break and took in the wonderous views of many mountain ranges and vales. The Knockmealdowns and the famous 'V' were clear though cloud cover was building south of them, The Comeraghs leading on tto Slievenamon and behind it the Blackstairs before the Slieve Ardagh hills before the Slievebloom way to the north heading back to the Devil's Bit range where Knockanora lead on to the three sisters of Knockadigeen, Ballincurra and Coneen before Keeper rose 'monarch' like to the Slieve Felims.
I could see dark clouds gathering over the high Galtys so I cut short my rest with a last view of the Blackwater valley. I checked the OSI map but could find no name for the mountain. I took a few snaps and headed for Sturrakeen along a ridge of sorts beside an old walled road/lane.
A grand mountain, thanks to MV for naming it. Linkback:
