I walked down the long ,broad back of Maulin and crossed over point 579mtrs before reaching the rounded hump of Lackawee.There are several turf banks to be avoided on the way and again the ground seemed very wet in places. This is a great vantage point from which to view the Beara peninsula ,on a clear day is you can see it from the tip all the way back to the Sugarloaf over Glengarriff. In the distance to the north I could make out the 'Reeks quite clearly The photo is taken fom the north side of Maulin with Lackawee on the left and point 597mtrs in the near distance.
From Lackawee I retraced my steps to the lake on the col under Knocknagree and then skirted around to reach the track at approx 410 mtrs back down to Rosmackowen Church. 5.5 hours and 16.5 kms Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/323/comment/1791/
