Limited parking at start point. Buts lots of new forest tracks since earlier MV contributions so may be a better start point or easier start as some pushing through vegetation at end of first track. Steep climb up edge of forestry and onto open mountain to summit of Monabrack (aka Cruckrin on EW Maps). Dip before joining Lyrcacappul summit ridge. We turned right towards Slievecushnabinnia (to bag ridge high points and worth it for the views before turning back and folllowed the wall up to the top of Lyracappul. We were told by a local farmer that this wall separates private land on NE slopes from commonage on the SW slopes. We were using East West Mapping which uses different names for several peaks from OSI & MV (while appreciating their local research and desire for accuracy this can be confusing. Lyracappul becomes Cornabinnia). We dropped down to Little Bull and Bull Hill where we descended very steeply over rough ground to a bridge and followed tracks by river (nice for a dip on a hot day) through trees to start
