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.

Bhí sé go deas siúl mar ghrúpa arís
by pdtempan  28 Jun 2021
Ba é seo an chéad siúlóid den samhradh do ghrúpa siúlóide Phobal ar a'n Iúl. Bhí an t-ádh linn leis an aimsir mar bhí ceann de na laethanta is teo den samhradh againn go dtí seo. Bhí ochtar againn. Thóg sé timpeall uair an chloig orainn chun mullach an chnoic a bhaint amach ón bpointe tosaigh ar Bhóthar Lios na hAirne (H478822 B). Bhí radharc breá againn ansin a chuimsigh Mullach Cairn, Sliabh Beatha, Sliabh Troim agus Sliabh Speirín. Bhí sléibhte Thír Chonaill le feiceáil i gcéin freisin, lena n-áirítear cruach ghéar na hEaragaile.
Ar an mbealach ar ais ghlacamar malairt slí trasna an phortaigh, áit a raibh móin á thriomú. Ansin rinneamar lúbán tríd an bhforaois ar chosáin soir ón gcosán a dtéann díreach go dtí an mullach. Ag áit áirithe bhíomar os cionn an bhealaigh idir an Goirtín agus an Omaigh. Faoi dheireadh chuamar ar ais arís ar an gcosán díreach agus chuamar síos an 600 méadar deireanach go Bóthar Lios na hAirne.
This was the first walk of summer 2021 for the Pobal ar a'n Iúl walking group. We were lucky with the weather as we had one of the hottest days of summer to date. There were eight of us. It took us about an hour to reach the top of the hill from the starting point on the Lisnaharney Road (H478822 B). We had a great view which included Mullaghcarn, Slieve Beagh, Bessy Bell and the Sperrin Mountains. The hills of Donegal were also visible in the distance, including the pointed profile of Errigal.
On the way back we took a detour across the bog, where peat was drying. We then made a loop through the forest on paths east of the path that goes directly to the summit. At some point we were over the road between Gortin and Omagh. Eventually we got back on the direct path and descended the last 600 metres to Lisnaharney Road.
