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 185th highest summit in Ireland.

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/
