Viewed from Ballaghabehy, Lackagh's long squat profile seemed far away to the southwest. And at times it was tedious, as we trudged for 3km across brown heather and hags, though enlivened by a few small lakes, before we gently ascended the broad summit ridge. The trig-pillared summit sits at the southern end of the ridge, above Lough Strand. Old telecommunication equipment lies rusting on the ground, but otherwise you get the feeling that nobody has been here for a long time.
Again, superlative views: Cuilcagh, Slievenakilla, Lough Allen and Knocknarea, to name but a few.
We were told that there were the remains of old mines somewhere up here, but we didn't see anything answering that description. Nor did we see any traces of beehive cells, apparently the remains of the monastery of Kilnaile founded in 563 by St. Natalis.
From the summit we descended south-east till we met the corner of a block of forestry, and followed it's edge east until we arrived back to the Leitrim Way, right beside the gate and our parked car. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/625/comment/4509/
