On a footnote to the naming sheet 85 is in a fair mess, with 2 Knockboys and Knocknamanagh 2 miles astray! The old sheet 24 has Caoinkeen and I think this is probably correct, the lake below it being Lough A-Caoinkeen, the Gaelic genitive. While on the subject of old names try fishing a red trout out of Lough Nambrackdearg nearby before the hyrdo power schemes get at it. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/120/comment/1366/
