Views of most of Munster
by YoungJohn  20 Mar 2011
After St. Patricks Day for penance I approached Carrigabinnia from Monabrack on the road on the left from Kilbeheny marked with a sign for Kings Yard. Lynam's route advice in reverse!
The terrain is open with old turf banks and sheep tracks. While it is steep and offering a good challenge the views are awesome.
Galtymore looms large to the right while a view of Templehill on the left is blocked by Knockaterriff for a while. The summit was a bit sodden under foot despite little rain for a week or so.
A fine dry stone wall divides the summit before Lyracappul rises to the west. The summit itself has no real focal point but grand views of most of Munster are to be had. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/31/comment/6280/

Flat top but excellent viewing platform.
by Harry Goodman  21 Jul 2011
Climbed Carrignabinnia on 10 10 10 as the fourth top in a round that also included Temple Hill, Knockaterrif Beg, Lyracappul and Monabrack (For earlier part of the route see my comments on Lyracappul). Having left Lyracappul summit R8456223179 A we followed the ridge down NE and then up to the flat summit area and the "summit" at R8500023700 B or there abouts! We also had as a guide the stone wall to our right running along from Lyracappul in a NE direction, the same stone wall, it turned out, which we had encountered on Slievecushnabinnia, in mist, the previous day. From Carrignabinnia top we also had our first view of Slievecushnabinnia and Galtymore both of which we had topped but not seen, due to mist, on the previous day. From the top we changed direction and headed SSE across the broad moorland top, over the wall and off in search of Monabrack our fifth and final mountain for the day.

This photo taken from near the summit of Galtymore shows the western Galtees with Temple Hill in the distance, Knockaterrif in front, and then Lyracappul in the centre and Carrignabinnia to the right. The end point of the Galty wall can be seen in the left centre foreground. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/31/comment/1284/
