A fantastic promontory over Glanmore Lough
by David-Guenot  16 Apr 2014
Stookeennalackareha was the last top of a five-summit circular walk which also included Knockowen, Cushnaficulla, Knockeirky and Glenkeel Top (see previous comments on this walk). Walked down Knockowen and its cloudy top and my last target of the day appeared below me, bathed in a shower of sunbeams that were peering out of the clouds, proudly facing the massive outline of Lackabane. The descent is not very steep from this side, and the soft and relatively dry ground made it easy for the knees. There is a flat, boggy area before the final 3-5 minute pull-up to the top. There is a sheer drop on the W side, so care would be required on a windy day. The views are rewarding, with the triangular shapes of Knockastumpa, Knockatee and Knockanoughanish to the N, Kenmare River and the Dunkerron to the NW, Glanmore Lough, Tooth Mountain and Lackabane to the W/SW, and the W slopes of Knockowen to the E.
The 10-15 minute descent to the Healy Pass road required much more care as the previous one, as it is steeper and a bit slippery in some places. Descended along the small stream in the centre of the pic and reached the road near the bridge described by Jackill. It was then another 10-15 minute walk up the road to the car/Pass. A fantastic, unforgettable round trip of about 7 hours. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/773/comment/16015/
