Detour from Slí Bharra
by conorb  2 Sep 2019
Got to Conigar by taking a detour off the well marked Slí Bharra waymarked route above Lough Naman. It was a little soft underfoot in places but a relatively straightforward way to make your way to the cairn at the top.
After reaching the peak, we rejoined the waymarked route near Lough Fada and Lough Namral. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/333/comment/20642/
