Croaghonagh or Barnesmore?
by TommyV  30 Oct 2018
This route has an unsurfaced road that leads all the way to the top. There is parking to the North of the hill just off the N15 at H04770 87724 B. Nice views across to the Blue Stack Mountains on the far side of the Barnsmore Gap. Be sure to sop off at Biddy O'Barnes for a beverage afterwards.
