The day was cold with occasional hail showers. picture 1 for track/4996  : Surveying Ballineddan and Slievemaan, mucky end near Toorboy

From near the top of Lybagh, we got a great, mostly clear view of Lug, to the left, with Corrigasleggaun and the snowy top of Carrawaystick (not an MV listed top) to the right.

Returning, we dropped down towards the public road. But this wasn't easy. We successfully got to our target track as shown which did the final work of bringing us to the road and not infringing on any cultivated fields or too near any farm. But the land was extremely rough and slow going. There were only snatches of animal tracks to assist. In retrospect it would have been better to stay to the north side of the stream we came down beside, because the land is flatter and there some quad tracks. We didn't do this because we didn't know if it was possible to cross the stream nearer to the road. Crossing is possible to within perhaps 700m NE of the road.

The surveying results: Ballineddan is not an Arderin because it has a prominence of 26.5. Slievemaan has a height of 759.7m
