by jackill  24 Oct 2004
Very wet day down south so I decided to get a few of the lesser summits under my belt.Started at S083 112 B and followed the track for approx. 0.75 km. The track then swings around to the south west (not shown on map) - tI went straight ahead 0.5 kms over bog and heather to the summit cairn of Knockmeal.
From Knockmeal I followed the wall as marked on the map over to Crohan West. Its a very exposed summit over looking Tipperary and Waterford ( photo) - some shelter on the north side of the summit cairn for the soup and sandwich. I followed another wall(east of Crohan overlooking the Melleray to Newcastle road) not on the map down to some newly planted forestry and then followed the forest track(ta v. much coillte) to the main road at approx S087 111 C Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/410/comment/1272/
