Lackagh or Boleybrack?
by TommyV  20 Mar 2019
My approach to Lackagh mountain also known as Boleybrack was from the West side of the mountain. There is a road leading to G90078 31002 D where there is a road leading into a forest with unauthorized access signs, a windfarm also with unauthorized access signs but a third is a farm track with no signs. This track zig zags between the windfarm and forest for about two kilometers before it forks, the path to the right will provide a more direct approach to the summit. The obvious track ends about 500 meters later and from here there is no option but to bog slog West for about two kilometres to the trig. Lackagh Lough will break up the monotony on the way and on the way back the views over to the rest of the Dartry mountains will help. Meaves cairn atop Knocknarea can be clearly seen.
