Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  30 Mar 2022
This is often done in conjunction with the other two nearby Carns (Knockeirka, Barraduff), although bagging all three is a lengthy walk. One approach is via Barraduff (see that hill's short summary). From there you can choose to visit Knockeirka (a 5km round trip) or Killaha (a 4km round trip.) The drop to the col from Barraduff is steepish, and the ascent to Killaha even more so, but the terrain is mostly firm underfoot, a mixture of grass, rock and occasionally heather. The summit of Killaha is a sharp rocky crag about 30 metres long. Fine views in all directions. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/831/comment/5590/
