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. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/31/comment/6280/
