Cragnamurragh can also be accesses from various roads & paths. You can cross from Moylussa through very boggy & wet ground loosely following a bog road opened up by machinery or you can access it from behind the village of Broadford . From the village of Broadford … Look out for the East Clare way signposts just off the R465 Map 58 GR R 567 743 A. Park the car here or follow the road up a couple of Kms .Follow the East Clare way through forestry until you can see a small "lough" to your left called Poulalougha .Here you will see the slope of Slieve Bearnagh on your left and before the path starts to fall away veer left and start climbing along a distinct path past a Megalithic tomb shown on Map 58 . Heading up towards through heather to Lough Avullig there is excellent views here of County Limerick & Co Clare ….From here and with the lake to your left …. veer off to the right across calf high heather towards Cragnamurragh & it's triangulation point Here you can decide to back track or optionally if you had a second car you could have parked either at Rinanna Point GR R 688 760 B …….The second optional car could be reached by walking back along the saddle to Moylussa and down again to rejoin the East Clare way ( Try to aim for the 200mts boggy track that runs parallel to the tree line at GR R 657 756 C as this is far easier than roaming across KM's of heather) Once back on the forest track it is a nice relaxing end to the walk through Ballycuggaran woods to Rinnanna Point …..OR ….. alternatively park your second car in Kilbane village and aim to drop down from the saddle between Cragnamurragh & Moylussa heading to a distinct track at Coumbrack GR R 644 745 D . About 30 minutes from the start of the track you will see gate where you can see Lackareagh with it’s Ariel above you to the left. Turn right here at the gate and walk the 3km + back to your car .
