Located NW of Gortin Glen. The origin of the name Curraghchosaly is unclear, but it may be derived from Ir. Currach Chos Shalach, 'bog of the dirty hill-foot’. It refers not to the mountain itself but to a place to the south in the townland of Castleroddy Glebe. This can be compared with Cos Shalach / Cossallagh, Co. Mayo. The anglicised form Curraghchosaly is slightly misleading, as it suggests ch- as in chain. It is sometimes spelt Curraghcosaly, which is preferable in some ways.   Curraghchosaly Mountain is the 871st highest place in Ireland.

Summit easily gained - slower progress to the west
by pdtempan  16 Jun 2021
We were looking for a short walk for a Saturday afternoon, and being familiar with Mullaghcarn, decided that it would be worth exploring Curraghchosaly Mountain, its lower neighbour on the west side of Gortin Glen. We parked at the forest entrance in Lislap East at H478822 A, following pquinn572 and others. From here we followed the forest track steadily uphill until we reached the brow of the hill at H489829 L. We had overshot the left turn recommended by Peter Walker while chatting, but this didn’t cause us any difficulty as there was an obvious grassy forest ride branching left towards the summit. We took this and shortly arrived at a small area of turf cuttings, which we crossed to rejoin the forest road. This led on to the summit. On the way we noticed bilberry bushes in flower on the right-hand side of the road. At the summit we circumvented the transmitter enclosure on the north side, and continued westwards for the more open view, in which Sliabh Troim / Bessy Bell was prominent. The top of Mullaghcarn and the higher peaks of the Sperrins were hidden under cloud.
Beyond the summit the going became slower, with only the roughest of paths descending through knee-high heather. We made a short lunch stop at a col H469842 M, where a path running roughly north-south traverses the ridge. The midges ensured that we didn’t get too comfortable. We then followed this path for a while to the north, coming across some very dense, fluffy patches of bog cotton, then north-west, as it skirted Ballynatubbrit Mountain, leaving it and heading uphill at the point where it began to trend steeply downhill. Pretty soon we reached a fence following the watershed, which led us to the summit of Ballynatubbrit Mountain H463846 N. This ridge continues further west to the Robber’s Table and Mary Gray before descending to Newtownstewart. However, we aimed south-west from the top of Ballynatubbrit Mountain towards an obvious antenna, picking up a path leading down towards Eskeradooey. At the first farm we joined the road, which brought us momentarily to the west, then south to join Lisnaharney Road. We had 2km of road-walking, heading east along Lisnaharney Road to return to the starting point. The entire trip took about 3¼ hours including 25 mins for lunch.
