On St Patricks Day myself and old Brendan climbed Knockanbane as part of a walk which took in Mullaghash,Barnes Top, Sawel and Dart. We parked at the old pub on the b44 between Feeny and Park and followed the lane signposted Ballydonegan Sweat House.Following this lane for approx a mile as it passes through a farm yard past a wooden bridge, through two gates and across a stream we reached the base of Mullaghash whos stoney summit could be seen of to the left.We reached Mullaghashs summit which is marked by large rock and turned right at the fence and followed it down and then up onto Barnes Top ,the fence turns right again and runs into a dip before rising to Knockanbanes summit.(Knockanbane and Barnes Top are basicaly two bumps on one mountain) We descended Barnes Top and reached Barnes Road at this point Brendan informed me that the farmer who owns this mountain is a bit funny about access.After crossing the road we forded the stream at the bottom of the valley before starting a steady ascent of Sawel,stopping for tea half way up.With our batteries recharged we set of again,old Brendan like a hare and me a tortoise.(must be the DELICIOUS chocolate which gives him a boost) We topped Sawel and headed into the valley between it and Dart .A quick ascent of Dart finished our climbing for the day and left us with a long two hour walk back to the car(including a 3.5 mile road walk)From Darts summit head for Crockahilly road which is in roughly a Northern direction ,at end of this road take right onto Dreen road ,then take the first left onto Kilcreen road ,follow this to its end and turn right at the b44 and 10 minutes walk away is the start point.....A good walk which took 6.5 hours including stops for tea and various pics Linkback:
