MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Knockeenatoung in area Galty Mountains, Ireland
 
by jackill  16 Aug 2004 Photo of the top of Knockeenatoung with summit cairn on the left of photo and a small concrete hut on the right, Galtymore is behind on the left and Galtybeg on the right. The Black Road climbs along the hill you can just make out in front of Galtybeg.Fairly uninteresting summit with some concrete blocks thrown about , the hut seems to have had electricity and insulation - any one know what the hut was used for?

by oldsoldier  15 Jan 2009 Fri, 9 Jan, I completed Knockeenatoung as the first of my 600 meter summits in this year of 2009. From here I went onto Greenane west and back down as I was caught for time on that day. Beautiful sunny day but very cold. On the summit is a concrete structure which used to house TV rebroadcast equipment. This picked up BBC and HTV signals from Wales and rebroadcast them to the Caher, Ardfinnan, Clonmel area. This was used in the early eighties. Since it closed I have used this shed as a bivvy on several occasions on my climbs on the Galtys. I approached form the Black road and down to the monument. as an aside I was part of the army team sent in to recover the casualties of that plane crash in Septembe 1976.

by Jimmy barry  15 Sep 2008 Yes this is part of plane that crashed. Next Saturday is the annaversery of the crash. I took a walk up there yesterday with a friend and there was so much water falling from the sky and in the rivers there was no way I was getting out my camera. We went up from Glengarra and back by the memoreal stone, then down by the side of Knockeennatoung. With some Local knowladge and good navigation we came out at the youth hostil, not having to cross any river.

Steep sided but worth a visit
by YoungJohn  11 Aug 2012 climbed this steep sided mountain, on the way back from Galtybeg, to the old LDF concrete hut? at the top in the company of a hiker I teamed up with that evening. There are concrete blocks on the mountain to the east, these appear to be of old manufacture. My companion beleived these blocks may have had a military purpose as rests for rifle during target practice by the LDF (Land Defence Force) during the Emergency aka WWII. I had passed this mountain a few times whilst traversing the black road but availed of the splendid sunny evening, a rare thing in summer 2012, to tick this off the list. Lovely views of the Galtys and Knockmealdowns...
