Going up the col towards Carrignabinnia looking back at Monabrack (Lyracappul SE Top).
Taken as part of a horse shoe starting at Grid Ref: R 862 208 starB, up the track to the Mobile home - then follow the track along the edge of the trees(not on map) to the point where it swings down sharply to the left. Cross the fence and head on a 346 deg bearing to the summit of Monabrack. From there on to Carrignabinnia, across the ridge to Lyracappul then down to Knockaterriff Beg and Knockaterriff to meet a track with a well-built stone wall running along it. Follow the track to a gate by a shed near a river then right to a second gate then sharp left up a new track through some young trees to an abandoned farmhouse on the side of Carrigeen Mountain - follow the track from the farmhouse and take the right fork to return to the starting point.Good conditions generally underfoot with excellent views. 5 hrs and 12 kms.
