Re Summiteers Knockboy
Captain V,
Indeed yes you probably could do this. Taking the legs as numbered
2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 are doable and appear on tracks uploaded to MV (or I have done and/or seen them).

3 is on the road so is doable, though not necessarily safe knowing some of the crazy roads there are around there.

4 I don't know. Very likely it is possible.

However perhaps a broader question is that this is an immense amount of ingenuity to reach the top of the max number of higher summits. However isn't it degenerating into bagging rather than summiteering? The formers tends towards narrowness perhaps though still better than repetitiously climbing the same places. The latter is more an experience of walking an interesting route, efficient certainly but also allowing time for photography or investigation of the area and time for writing up and sharing the result. Striding along perhaps with a night on the bare mountain on the earphones might be a better experience (actually it might be safer not at night).

The proposed route for example doesn't take in Bird Hill, an interesting and extremely steep sided hill which I visited last year. Visits to the area might also benefit by taking the route of the "Beara Borders" - the Cork/Kerry border which, more or less, forms the watershed between north and south of the Cahas.
