From Lack Mountain I followed the fence, with its sheep track easing the progress through the heather. After reaching Moanlaurs summit, the delightful ridge running SW starts to revel its self with Knockmore in the foreground. Not much height difference between Knockmore and Moanlaurs, but i think Knockmore has the better views, just. Continued onto Beenduff ........ (see Beenduff for the continuation) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/332/comment/4126/

A great view from the top of Monalaur. Worth bringing a flask of tea and soak it in. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/332/comment/14721/

Picture: aim for the hill of rocks in the centre of the photo, but keep to east.
 
Great views on a nice day

I did this walk on Saturday (14th July 2012).
I went up Lack mountain to begin with. Then, at the top, I suggest you try stay to the east side to avoid the low land which can be really boggy.
When I was a child it was a joke when someone went missing to say that "He dissappeared down a boghole". You do need to watch your step here as you can be in 1m of bog water very easily (I have heard its good for skin).
There are a number of sheep paths that will guide you but try keep to the east side as I said. Then try make it to the hill of rocks in the centre of the picture. From which there is an easy descent into the valley to cross the river.
From here on in go slowly through the bog it turns dry about have way up. If there is a wind you will be blown away as you cross the ridge. You will see a fence when you get near the top which stretches across the headland. Worth noting that if you get disorientated because of mist you can follow this fence down the mountain it is very steep but if you go slow it will guide you down onto a main road.
