'"'Start from the road and ascend Meenteog as shown. The ridge extending N of Meenteog that you encounter first is known as Knocknaman. On the way up Coomacarrea there is an odd sight at one point at around 680m. It is possible to see the very small Loughacummeen at around 510m apparently right beside the much larger Coomasaharn Lake at 161m. This particular track didnt go to Teeromoyle Mountain however with a little trick navigation it is easy to do so. Keamconneragh or Teeromoyle Tooth is the name of a bump at around 608m in a knife edge arete. In high winds this is visibly dangerous and inexperienced members of a party may find this ridge which is short, grassy and frequently wet very daunting. Beyond this ridge is Coomreagh and a reasonably easy descent to the start.
