From the summit of Beenkeeragh IV80125 85246 D (see for previous stage of walk) it is a short but fairly steep drop onto the wide col dividing it from the twin peaks of Knockbrinnea. Once on the flat col the ground is much easier to negotiate and if you make for the East top of Knockbrinnea first you can avoid much of the rockier walking until you approach that summit. On my way down I noticed a large number of sheep who appeared somewhat depressed looking. I was unsure what might have been the cause of their malady until I notice that each was adorned with red, white and blue paint daubed on their coats. Obviously, French supporters depressed at their misfortune in the World Cup Final just a few days previously – Zidane’s unfortunate faux pas had obviously added to the feelings of misery they so clearly exhibited as I passed them by. The walk across the col to the east top passing underneath the West top (which I would bag on the return) was a welcome respite from the rocky underfoot conditions experienced since summiting Caher West Top, but it was to be short lived as the ground again turns rocky as you meet the obvious track running below both summits. The top of Knockbrinnea IV 81020 85737 E, with its small cairn is unremarkable in itself, but the views around it are excellent not least that down into the Hags Glen and across to Carrauntoohill’s Northern aspect. There were three walkers on the summit of the highest peak who enthusiastically returned my wave as I made my way from the summit to take a fairly short walk over to its sister top to the west (see for next stage of walk).
