COMMENTS for Knockanamadane 1 of 1
A very rough little hill
by IainT  31 Dec 2016
I used to take groups up this in the early 1990s, mainly to visit the Mass Rock on the SW shoulder. It's easy to find as it's pretty much the only horizontal rock on the whole hill. We used to go up the forest edge from the Kerry Way, which was pretty rough, but then so is everywhere else, a maze of rock slabs, gorse and tussocks, an extremely rough place. Above the Mass Rock is a prominent tall cairn, the Sentry, where a lookout was stationed during services, then higher up are numerous minor tops. The name is from Cnoc an Amadaun, "hill of fools", supposedly either from people being confused by the many tops or from redcoats firing at the cairn thinking it was a person. Maybe.
Incidentally, the hill to the east (764 679 A), called Fiacaill locally although not named on any map I've seen, and not on any list, is a cracking little peak, easily climbed from the Kerry Way by the track on its SE flank. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1191/comment/18753/
