Turners Rock is immediately east of the tunnel at the summit of the Caha Mountain Pass. The rocks hereabouts are grooved due to the passage of ice according to T.J. Barrington (Discovering Kerry).   Turners Rock is the 842nd highest summit in Ireland. Turners Rock is the most westerly summit in the Shehy/Knockboy area.

Park at V9056 6011 A on the N71, theres plenty of room on the Kerry side of the tunnel.
A path around the side points the way and then stay as close as you can to the sheepwire fence crossing to the Cork side of it as you reach the summit area. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/732/comment/5491/
