Lyracappul from the south
by Declan Foley  6 Dec 2022
Climbed it on Saturday, May 8, 2004, a beautiful sunny day with little or no wind. Started from the end of the boreen (turn left off the main Cork - Dublin road just after Kilbeheny - look out for the Coillte sign) and took the sloping track up the left hand side of the valley, emerging on the col between Knockaterriff and Lyracappul befort turning sharp right to summit of Lyracappul. Just over 2 hours from the car to the top (out of practice!). No other walkers in sight - just myself and the hares for company. Descended to Bengower and back to the valley floor via the 'Zig Zag'. A lovely walk, easy access from Cork. A good walk for those of us 'mere mortals' who are emerging from the winter hibernation and need a few easy but interesting walks to get back into practice. Anyone have any background on the history of the area, all those amazing stone walls? Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/29/comment/965/
