I am Iron Man
Short Summary created by sandman, jackill,  7 Sep 2015
Starting from the road at W31269 84532 A, you will just about park a car here at the roadside, walk up beside the forestry fence before hopping it at W31000 84000 B and making a short struggle through sparse, low conifers to the summit and a fallen, rusting, iron aerial array.

Starting from the road at W31269 84532 walk up beside the forestry fence before hopping it at W31000 84000 and making a short struggle through sparse, low conifers to the summit and a fallen iron man. To the north is Knocknakilla an area noted for its large complex of megalithic monuments.There is a recumbent stone circle, a radial cairn and two portal stones (one of which has fallen), aligned NNE-SSW. The stone circle is made up of five 1.3-1.5m high stones, of which two have fallen. Only the two northern portal stones and a stone at the west stand today. The stone row, made up of two stones both over 3.5m tall, seems to have been aligned on the stone circle, although the stone nearest the circle has fallen, and the remaining stone has a pronounced lean.Three meters away is a 10 stone, 3.5m diameter, radial cairn which was first discovered by Coillte Teoranta in 1970. This is a rare cairn type and indeed one of only ten others in Ireland. Given the monuments alignment with the rising and setting sun it is speculated they may have funtioned as calenders. (thanks to Denis Power (1997). Archaeological inventory of County Cork). Quite nearby is Glantane East Wedge Tomb. Known locally as "The Flags", the wedge tomb stands 90cm in height, with a capstone 2.4m square resting on two sidestones and a backstone. Some of the double-walling is still in place and a small stone 40cm high stands between the two sidestones Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/467/comment/3459/
