28/12/2013. Climbed Cooneen hill today after Knockane and Knockfune. I started from forestry entrance R90294 66782 A followed well made track for about 1km passing by huge stacks of recently harvested timber. I then went left uphill on a deeply gouged out track which was extremely tough going as the mud was above ankle deep in many places, undeterred I followed this uphill. Along this track there were many newly gouged out smaller tracks heading in all directions, I was unable to follow simon3`s directions as this side of the hill is now completely denuded of trees and the tracks destroyed. I persevered though making for high ground and eventually made it out of the mud and felled trees to a heathery area where I found traces of a track and a line of old fence posts that I followed to the summit. It took me 37mins from the car. Unless you fancy a mud bath find an alternative route up. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/558/comment/15291/
