About 600m SW of of Moanlaur there is another flattish summit, Knockmore. It could be argued that it is a separate peak, however by my reckoning its prominence (the amount it rises above any connecting ridge in this case from Moanlaur) is about 26m which is less than the 30m that our current list requires.

From Knockmore's top further Kerry views are plentiful. There's the sea to the south with Inch Strand and Cromane sticking into Dingle Bay. There's views to the north west towards Stradbally Mountain.

Our photo shows what can be seen looking west along the Moanlaur ridge. With the right weather and light there is a superb picture to be had here, which the picture only hints at. To the left in the reddish haze there's a glint off the sea with the bulky blob of Kells Mtn/ Knocknadobar just visible on the left skyline. Straight ahead is Beenduff 515m with the sharper ridge of Emlagh 483m beyond and slightly to the right. Just right of centre are further mountains on the continuation of the ridge (unnamed with heights 374m and 334) and further high ground near Knockafeehane 301m. Together they make a series of repeated shapes disappearing into blue haze. On the right of the picture the land rises as our view extends right down the Dingle peninsula.
