Canon Power names the main hills of Lismore and Mocollop parish as Knockmaeldown, 2609 ft, and Knocknarea, 2149 ft (PND). This latter height translates to 655m, which shows that it is an alternative name for Knocknagnauv. Cnocán na Ré means 'little hill of the flat top'.   Knocknagnauv is the 179th highest summit in Ireland.

The best view of Knockmealdown?
Short Summary created by jackill  22 Aug 2012
Park on the roadside at S112 083 A on the Mellary to Newcastle road just after you cross the border to Tipperary and past an abandoned farmhouse on the right. There is room here for 5-6 cars.
You will notice there are two tracks running side by side uphill , take the right hand one and follow it uphill and west.
After 0.75 kms follow this track left and around the side of Knockmeal for about 1km.
The track turns left again and slightly downhill to the col with Knocknafallia you will see a rough wall, which I recommend walking to the east side of, skirting Knocknafallia and heading gently uphill towards Knocknagnauv. Follow this wall and though it disappears into the bog on some small sections eventually it becomes quite clear and the stonework appears. It will lead you all the way to the summit which is just a little further on after the wall turns at a sharp right angle . Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/180/comment/4940/

This mountain has a number of bumps on it running from where the picture below was taken into the background. The main bump on the skyline is marked on the map as the true top, however it certainly would not be by much. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/180/comment/432/

Knocknagnauv, hill of the bones, isn’t probably a mountain walkers set out to conquer. It is more a stop on the way while traversing the Knockmealdowns. The picture below shows the wide col between Knocknagauv and Knockmealdown, the highest peak on the skyline. To the right of Knockmealdown is Knockmoylan.

On the traverse Knocknagnauv is but a stepping stone on the way to Knockmealdown. As is often the case when on a ridge walk the mountain does not have the same character as when viewed from a distance. The photo shows that when viewed from Crohan West, Knocknagnauv has substance. See Knockmealdown for a continuation of the traverse. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/180/comment/1875/

After our brief stop on Knockmealdown, the journey east along the county boundary took a steep downhill to about 520metres before crossing the gap and uphill again to Knocknagauv's summit. We lunched on the Tipperary side of the boundary where we discovered a bit of a high point in the wall, and where we could get a little respite from the Southerly gale, and this sustained us enough to continue the journey to the top of K'gauv. Unfortunately, weather conditions were so bad I can't give a comentary, good or bad for this summit, but I'm sure it's quite nice if you could see the hand in front of your face!
