Short Summary created by aidand,  22 Jan 2014
Knockshegowna hill is situated a few miles south of Birr. The hill is privately owned and forms part of Fairymount Open Farm. The farm is open to the public though there is an entrance fee. There are a number of walking trails laid out, a small lake, picnic areas and a mountain bike trail. Full details are available on www.fairymountfarm.com. It's a pleasant enough place to visit, more for a family outing than a serious walk. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1276/comment/15520/

Grandad Day!

When you have a couple of the grandkids for the day then what better than tiring them out on a local hill? Knockshigowna is off the main N52 road and is easily spotted at night by it's illuminated large cross. I parked at the Fairymount Farm car park S000 957 A where much renovation and other works are in progress. Following the Red Hill trail it was easy enough for the little ones who enjoyed the views from the top. The summit itself not only has the aforementioned cross but a trig, an ugly communication mast collection and a currently in progress downhill MTB platform and course which crosses the walking route and is at present a bit of a scar. No doubt the owner has big plans for the future and I suspect it is a busy spot when the cycling is in full swing. As it was we only met 3 other walkers on the day. The cafe was not staffed and there wasn't anyone about. Summer season will no doubt be a different experience but it's a pleasant spot to take the family.

Fairymount Farm.

The owners, who were very welcoming, explained to me that as it got harder to make a living in agriculture they decided to use the isolated hill that their farm was located on to develop walking trails but alas walkers were as profitable as agriculture so they developed a fantastic facility for mountain bikes. The walking trails are no more but I was allowed up to the summit via the uplift road without a cover charge . In another part of the farm on the opposite side of the road from the bike park a cricket pitch complete with pavilion is located. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1276/comment/18215/
