Knocknadobar is a hill of pilgrimage. The stations of the cross were erected by Canon Brosnan in 1855. One of the wells referred to in the name is St. Fursey's Well, located at the foot of the mountain, near the start of the pilgrimage route to the summit. It is visited for a cure for eye complaints. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 137-39) for details of the mountain pilgrimage.   Knocknadobar is the highest mountain in the Iveragh NW area and the 128th highest in Ireland.

Richard Mersey [The Hills of Cork & Kerry] like other guidebook writers mentions the fourteen “Stations of the Cross” (places for prayer, with white crosses) which start from the road to Cloonana and lead up nearly to a cross near the top of Knocknadobar. He had some difficulty finding them and says somewhat tongue in cheek “The crosses were positioned to give the worst possible ascent – as an additional penance, presumably.”

This terrain simulation shows the relationship of the main summits around this area. Note that you are looking approximately East in this view. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/123/comment/1362/
