The top of Lyracappul SE has this mini-cairn. On the skyline is Temple Hill, with the high ground of Knockaterriff rising to the left in front of it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/231/comment/564/

Lyracappul SE Top stands proudly on the southern side of the Galtees as shown in this photo and it was our last summit having started at Sturrakeen in the east and taken in most of the ridge, just with one diversion to Knockeenatoung, in March 2005. An enjoyable contour from where the photo was taken at the col between Slievecushnabinnia and Carrignabinnia leads to the mountain. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/231/comment/1511/
