The Bearhaven copper mines, located to the west of Knockoura on the low but rugged hills above Allihies, were run by the Puxley family of Dunboy. Daphne du Maurier relocated them on Hungry Hill for her novel of the same name.   Knockoura is the highest hill in the Slieve Miskish area and the 594th highest in Ireland.

A hurried summit climbed mostly by car
by Geo  20 Aug 2010
After doing Hungry Hill to Healy Pass earlier in the day , and having seen this one from the Copper mines at Allihies a few days previous I wanted to bag it purely as I hadn't done any summits In Sl Miskish and wanted to add something to my list. We drove out of Castletownbere on the R572 west to a right turn off at Cloghane Bridge. Drove as far as the Beara Way turn off right up a long cul de sac. Driving up here, one hopes not to meet anyone as its only one car width the whole way to a point where the Beara Way continues on straight, but here turn left on up the access road to the Antenna farm! Eventually I reached a tied gate which I passed through, closed the gate afterwards, and then we had to drive with care as the road is now unpaved, at least not paved with anything more solid than shale. Eventually we had to stop at a gate just below the antennae. Here we exited the car and walked along the top of the mountain for about 15 minutes and got to the trig point. Quite possibly the easiest summit I have ever reached. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/485/comment/6039/
