Rinn Chonaill is a marvellous place to admire the entire Brandon range and also offers magnificent views W/SW of the Dingle peninsula. It's an easy walk up along Cosan na Naomh from Kilmalkedar church/graveyard at Q402062 starA. This is a perfect walk to do with the family and take the kids up, or as part of an evening stroll in the dying embers of sunlight to admire the sun setting down the west. Even in the winter, its summit will be an ideal location to admire the Brandon range and its blanket of snow covered slopes. Or a perfect blue sky summer's day for a picnic! Go and enjoy!

Climbed Reenconnell after a look round Kilmalkedar, a very interesting start to the day and well worth looking before or after the hill.

Follow the Cosan na Naomh up hill, over several walls (stiles) till the col between pt252 and the summit. Turn right (crossing a fence & stone wall close together) and follow the wall up hill, then a slight descent, crossing a second wall here and then walk slightly up hill to the summit. Its best to return by the way of ascent, as there is wind bush covering the west summit area, which makes for a prickly descent! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/981/comment/4119/
