Suprisingly nobody has yet commented on Cummeen. It seems easily accessible from the Glanteenassig forest car park

at Q619 086 A. Walk back to the main road, turn right and follow it SW to the gate at Q617 080 B. Pass through the gate

and follow the track as it gently meanders up the valley and past the waterfall. It's all very pleasant until the

track levels off and then diverges at Q622 073 C. From here on there is nothing but bog in every direction as far as

you can see. Following the track straight on will take you up towards Dromavally, whilst left crosses the river. At

this point I would suggest leaving the track and heading straight up the side of Cummeen. Following the track

further will lead you straight into the middle of the bog works and nowhere to go but to wade through knee-high

water-logged grass. If you make it past the bog and the flies don't eat you, the grass-covered summit of Cummeen

rewards you with a 360 panoramic view featuring the Magharees to the North and all the way to Clare, the Slieve Mish

mountains to the East, the Reeks to the south and Dromavally, Beenoksee and Stradbally to the West. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/524/comment/3255/
