Follow this road in to the countryside and branch off left on to Ballyagan Road. On reaching the junction with Cullyrammer Road, turn left and proceed to the next T-Junction. Turn right along Mullaghinch Road and then right again on to Moneydig Road. Keep on this road until reaching the outskirts of Kilrea.
