Short Summary created by jackill,  14 Jan 2012
The main carpark for access is at the start of The Black road R89306 20345 A (Point A) (ht333m

The Black road is a rocky, easy to follow track that is usually used as a start to climbing Galtymore, and it winds gradually around the western flank of Knockeenatoung after you pass through the second gate.

Keeping to the right and ignoring the tracks leading to your left after an initial rise and a distance of about 2 kms the track flattens out for about 0.5kms and at this point Knockeenatoung is uphill on your right.
As the track sweeps around to your right before the uphill look out for the memorial stone to the 1976 air crash.
From the stone go directly uphill through bog then heather to the summit, there is no track to follow.
The summit is crowned by a concrete hut which was used to transmit TV signals in the 1980s. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/272/comment/5032/
