MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Knockanaffrin in area Comeragh Mountains, Ireland

The actual summit is a jutting outcrop of the conglomerate rock that much of the Comeraghs are made of. The presence of such outcrops on summits (tors) in the area is thought to indicate that these mountain tops were not overridden by the icesheets of the recent ice-ages.

During the primary triangulation of Ireland Knockannafrin was a key point around 1829.

When I visited the summit in May 2004, there were two round and hollow structures built of piled rocks, which look like shelters. The photo shows part of one of these with a view SW along a spur of Knockanaffrin to a cairn (shown as at 718m on the OS). Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/74/comment/972/
