According to this source, the hill is also known as Croaghmore.   Knockmore is the 682nd highest place in Ireland. Knockmore is the second most southerly summit in the Achill/Corraun area.

Clare Island High Point
Short Summary created by Djouce,  12 Sep 2013
Knockmore has great views over Clew Bay. In many ways it is similar to its larger cousin, Slievemore, on Achill Island. There are sea cliffs on the northern slopes, which make it dangerous to climb in poor visibility. It can be approached over open country from the east ( a track leading from the road behind the post office) or west (from the signal tower). The ascent is steep over grassy (sometimes boggy) slopes. There is a large cairn just to the west of the trig point at the summit. It takes about an hour to climb from the west. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/571/comment/5330/
