Don't under-estimate the pull of the dark stuff

No navigation issues on my way to Knocknaskagh N from Knocknaskagh (but then again it was a bit early for a pint), follow the track past Knocknaskagh trig point and take the track North as marked on the OSI maps and pass the little lake indicated on the map. After the lake where it widens out, you'll come across a good path up the clearing towards the summit and there is a faint path all the way to cairn from near the treeline. (apologies for the tease Jackill) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/794/comment/14751/

jackill on Knocknaskagh N Top, 2007
by jackill  3 Sep 2007
I have to admit I was beaten by this mountain.Not by its massive height, but by its surrounding forestry , my tired legs which were worn nearly up to the knees after 19 kms walking, and the promise of a pint in Alberts bar in Fermoy. We left this 'til last on a circuit of the Nagles summits and thought "we'll pick it up on the way home".
Armed with no less that 3 gps units, 2 compasses ,maps and photos from trailmaster which clearly showed a track to the summit we arrived at a dead end 700 meters from the summit our way blocked by dense forest. After 30 minutes of cursing and swearing and debating and wandering in circles the thirst won! There is no way, short of crawling under the branches of a very dense forest to access this summit from the Knocknaskagh/Seefin side, or if there is its well hidden.
I will be back! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/794/comment/2813/

SUIOCHAN MNA FINNE - NAGLES MOUNTAINS
by bsheils  16 Sep 2012
Hi,

This is my first contribution to MV which I find extremely helpful and informative!

Just a short note to say that I have visited Knocknaskagh N Top using thomas_g described route. A local hillwalker informed me that the mountain is known as Suiochan Mna Finne which he told me translates as Seat of the Fair Lady.

Regards,
bsheils Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/794/comment/14814/

Very interested in bsheils' comment on an Irish name for this mountain. I see that an anglicised form of this name, Seehaunnamnafinna, appears on the 6" OS map, not on the summit, but on the northern slopes of this peak. It is located at approx. W698969 C, about 800m to the north of the summit. It is printed in a font which indicates an antiquity. There appears to be a discrepancy between this information and the marking of a cairn at the summit on the modern Discovery map as an archaeological feature. Can anyone give the true location of this cairn (assuming there is only cairn in question)? Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/794/comment/14820/
