It seems the unrelenting rain of the summer has taken its toll on the Sperrins, which never seem to have had a chance to drain themselves. We did Mullaghaneany as part of a Meenard to Crockbrack loop and unfortunately it was a heavy slog through a sodden landscape of mud, long heather and even longer rushes. There was a nice feeling of wilderness here but be warned - bring your leggings and gaiters and maybe even your waders... The top of Mullaghaneany is marked only by adjoining fences, a weather-worn boundary stone and the carcase of a dead sheep lying in a pool of water! The nearest parking point we could identify is a spot to the south west of Meenard at 639975 E. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/234/comment/3395/
