Picture: The wooded summit of Knocknasheega from BroeMountain
Tree covered, heathery and unenchanted place.
by simon3  25 Apr 2010 One way of accessing this summit is from the forest entrance at S13175 06653. Walk up the track until you come to a junction. Turn left at this and walk to around S13960621. Then head SW into a ride aiming for S1378206093 (215m at 241 degrees) where you go south along a ride to S1379905992 and then right to the summit.
The top is in a ride with not-so-great views and no cairn.
Still the name if not the mountain has a claim to fame: Knocknasheega was the mythical name of King Brian of the Leprechaun's hill in "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" a 1959 Hollywood oirish film starring Albert Sharpe, and would you believe it, Sean Connery. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052722 (Point E)/maindetails
