Two of the huge coums that dominate the sides of the Partrys nearly meet at the col between Barnahowna and Maumtrasna. At the lowest point of the col I found this simple memorial which says

In Memory of

THE MAN WHO DIED

HERE DURING THE

FAMINE YEARS

R.I.P.

The lake behind this stark reminder of our past is Lough Glenawough, at about 1170m long, the longest of the corrie lakes around Maumtrasna. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/421/comment/1674/
