Slieve Aghkerane comes from 'A New Map of Ireland' by Daniel Beaufort 1797 which is, in this area based on MacKenzie's sea charts of 1776. (Barry Dalby) It was the tradition for local children to gather bilberries on the mountain, and also another kind of small white berry called caora aitinn, which were bottled in whikey, buried, and kept as remedies for ailments. This took place on the last Sunday of July, known locally as Garlic Sunday (apparently a corruption of 'garland') or Domhnach Chrom Dubh [MacNeill, 191-92]. Previously Cullydoo in MV.   Slieve Aghkerane is the 442nd highest place in Ireland. Slieve Aghkerane is the second most easterly summit in the Achill & Corraun area.

A simple straightforward route to the top
Short Summary created by simon3, Harry Goodman  13 May 2020
At F763 011 A go south to L737 943 B. Take the good track up hill to a T junction. Leave the track and go NE up the hillside to a broad saddle (Pt 421) L761 957 C and then E gently up the slope to a cairn L76839 95608 D. Continue NE for a further 1.25k over heather and increasingly stoney ground, past a number of cairns, to reach the top. This is a perfect vantage point to view Croagh Patrick, the Sheefrey Hills and Mweelrea to the SE and NE to the many tops of the Nephin Beg range. Descend SW back to the cairn at L7683995608 D and then continue down in the same direction for a further 2k to pick up the access track at L751 948 E. Follow the track down to the start.

To include Corraun Hill in a looped walk, from point L7683995608 D continue down W to the broad saddle (Pt 421) L761 957 C and then go steeply uphill WNW to the summit trig pillar. Descend to the start at Buranioo Bridge as described in the short summary for Route 1 Corraun Hill. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/372/comment/5131/
