Laghtshee is the name of a burial cairn near the eastern end of this hill. This name is misspelt Faghtshee on the Discovery map. A height near the western end is named Stookaniller. The true summit is unnamed on maps but is locally known as Curra Hill.   Curra Hill is the 1216th highest place in Ireland. Curra Hill is the second most northerly summit in the Glenbeigh Horseshoe area.

rossbeighed on Curra Hill, 2009
by rossbeighed  19 Mar 2009
I climbed this last summer.this is part of a long stretch of mountain from glenbeigh to rossbeigh beach.
actually this was the very first mountain I climbed as an 11 year old way back in 1981! It was also nearly my last as I had a serious tumble on the steep face just above rossbeigh but lucky for me my da miraculously grabbed me before I would have went head first into rossbeigh hotel 900 feet below!.
lesson: don't jump on steep slopes..especially in 80's sneakers
so rather than let history repeat itself 27 years later I drove up around the back of the mountain starting at rossbeigh. about half a mile up the road turns south. take the next left for about 100 yards until you get to a gate. from there the walk up the dirt road is about 20 mins until you get to the top.
although less than 1000 feet high, the bottom of the mountain starts from sea level so you still get a great impression of height and a great view. mixed memories about this one... Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/980/comment/3652/
