Knocknafallia is a mountain without any definite summit. There is a cairn marked on OS Discovery Series 74 but this is quite clearly not the high point. The attached photo shows the gradient to be tackled between Knockmeal and Knocknafallia. The photo was taken from the northern approach to Knockmeal. See Knocknagnauv for a continuation of the traverse. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/158/comment/1874/
