Easy approach from Upper Kilbane
by stroel  17 Apr 2015
From Kilbane village take the gap road towards Killaloe . 200 m far from the junction with the signposts you will see a house and a tractor road on the left hand side . Only one car can be parked on the side of the main road.
Take the tractor road which in the spring time might be flooded by the small stream which cross it. Some stepping stone will help to cross this section and still remain dry.
On the tractor path are encounter three gates . The last one will lead you into an open field with clear view of the hills nesting the area: Glenvagalliagh to the right and Cragnamurragh straight ahead .
Walk up the hill and the first to be reached it will be the tail of Cragnamurragh (left hand side). The path will form a terrace of this small hill and soon enough you will encounter a fence . From here we are on the saddle so follow the boggy road to the top Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/401/comment/17933/
