The changeable nature of Irish weather was clearly demonstrated to me this weekend. I started out to bag Mullaghanish using the route along the forestry edge as described by SDillmore. It was fairly easy going with the series of fences making for easy route finding. The weather however was appalling, dull and foggy with an icy wind driving rain down the mountain straight into my face, a thorough soaking! I got back to the car and was in two minds whether to head for Coomagearlahy or to go home. After a cup of soup and a sandwich I felt reinvigorated and decided to press on. I headed to Ballyvourney and took the turning for Coolea. I travelled from Coolea to “ The Top of The Coom” Bar W112 732 C which at 300 meters boasts it is the highest pub in Ireland.
I turned off the main road just before Inchee Bridge at W080 739 D. I turned off this newly paved road onto a gravel road at W082 752 E. I then followed this track past a house and parked at the forestry entrance W089 758 F.The weather had changed completely in the 30 minutes the car journey had taken me. It was now a glorious clear winters afternoon. It seems quite busy at the forest entrance but the workers said there was no problem with parking (unless a tree fell on the car). I took a bearing for the summit which was approx 1.25 kilometres distant through the forestry. As I walked in (only the right hand fork shown on the map is useable) there were signs saying access was forbidden due to a wind farm being constructed. I went approx 300 metres beyond these signs and cut up through a gap in the forestry. I crossed over 2 newly built roads for the wind farm site traffic and eventually pushed through the last 100 meters in the trees to emerge on the open hillside approximately 120 meters from the summit. I took the summit to be a raised ridge of heather and rock, which seemed to be the highest point. There are great views from the summit of this modest hill as long as you don’t look to the south where the wind farm construction is taking place. The photo was taken looking north with, from the left, Knocknabro, The Paps , the Glenflesk valley and Crohane. I returned to the car by the same route. Trackback:
