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.

Picture: Curraghchosaly Mountain from Mullaghcarn
 
Long name, short ascent
Short Summary created by Peter Walker  6 Mar 2015
Curraghchosaly Mountain is one of the more westerly of the Sperrins, and faultily apes the higher Mullaghcarn across the B48 with its 50/50 mix of bare slopes and dense forestation. Forest roads hereabouts are being promoted quite heavily as mountain biking venues, and these same thoroughfares provide easy access to the summit, the climb being shortish and very much on the 'steady' side of 'steep'.

Start from (478822 A) where there is space to park cars at the forest entrance and an assortment of signs and noticeboards for mountain bikers. Follow the forest road north-west into the trees. You will pass two roads branching conspicuously off on the right at (480824 B) and (482827 C); after the second of these take the second of two roads branching off on the left in reasonably quick succession at (485828 D). This writhes uphill for about 600m before bending left and taking a much straighter course for the top, soon noticeable as a transmitter framed within the avenue of trees up which you eventually walk. A lump on the western side of the enclosure is the highest point, but views from here are very arboreally restricted; 200m further west the ground is almost as high but the prospect is much more open.
