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.

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/
