Hungry Hill is the title of a novel by Daphne du Maurier based on the story of the family of her friend, Christopher Puxley, whose family acquired Dunboy Castle and its lands after the defeat of Donal Cam O'Sullivan Beare. The copper mines located on the hill in the novel are in reality further west near Allihies. The second element of the Irish name, Cnoc Daod, has long been regarded as obscure, but it is probably simply a dialectal variant of déad meaning ‘tooth’, ‘jaw’ or ‘set of teeth’. A family living at the foot of the hill are known locally as the Bun Daods.   Hungry Hill is the highest mountain in the Caha Mountains area and the 135th highest in Ireland. Hungry Hill is the second most southerly summit in the Caha Mountains area. Hungry Hill is the third highest point in county Cork.

This is a very fine easy scrambling route. The well-defined ridge line rises direct to the summit in a series of low rock steps Most are easy; any harder options can be taken or avoided at will.

Take the r.hand turn off the R572 at Rossmackowen Bridge (grid ref: V745475 B OSI map 84) where a few parking spaces that will not displease the (very friendly) farmer can be found further up the road. Follow the track round to Loch Park a short distance round from which the bottom of the ridge is very obvious. Barry Keane in his Collins Press Beara guide instructs to start from the obvious notch in the ridge further on, but this is to miss the initial section, which seems a shame. The summit views are very fine, especially down into the entrancingly beautiful Gleann Mhoir to the north. A quick descent can be made via the grass rake on the south face below the ridge (see photo).

If attempting a circuit of Comnagapple be very sure to stick to the broad West ridge as much as possible. The incredibly rough 'benches' of ribbed rock that define the Caha easily become a
dispiriting maze and destroy any notion of distance measured 'as the crow flies'. As it is, the ridge path is rough and not all that obvious. Descents are possible with care straight down from the west ridge. If making the circuit, aim to stay above the Glas Lochs to pick up the boreen leading down (733499 C) from which turns off the path leading back across to Comnagapple and Loch Park and the start.
