This hill is named Knockane Ichyatow in the Civil Survey of 1654-56, where it is mentioned as part of the boundary of the barony of Owney and Arra. The second part of this name may represent the genitive of the surname Ó Céatfhadha, still found in this corner of Tipperary, and anglicised Keaty (when not adapted to the more common name Keating). If so, Knockane Ichyatow would represent Ir. Cnocán Uí Chéatfhadha, 'Keaty's hillock'.   Knockane is the 888th highest summit in Ireland.

Knockane isn't so exciting, still it has a good view of Keeper Hill from the East and views of the Silvermines.

We got there from Knockfune E top, however the route isn't easy - see piece on Knockfune E.

Looking at the map I would reckon the best place to reach it would be from the apparent forest entrance at 850664 E. We were on this track - follow it to 844633 F where you turn NE and go about 600m to the top.

To get towards Keeper Hill you need to get through the immediate trees. Do this by going E. You are funnelled into a rough, steeply descending ride. Come to a track and turn left on this, keep right, until it meets another track going N. This should bring you into sight of tracks to Keeper.

Our photo shows the rather splendid open top of Knockane. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/779/comment/3624/
