This peak, situated in the townland of Tangincartoor, is unnamed on OS maps. It is named Knockakishaan on William Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830). Previously Tangincartoor in MV. The spur to the NW (spot height 311m) is named Knocknabru_ky (with a letter apparently missing between U and K). This may represent Knocknabrusky.   Knockakishaun is the 972nd highest summit in Ireland. Knockakishaun is the most southerly summit in the Croagh Patrick area.

Alpine foothills in N. Mayo!
by Jamessheerin  14 Jun 2012
Parked at L851 751 A (good space for 2 cars) and first climbed to L851 740 B (the unnamed peak 388m, SW of Knockakishaun) to make the day longer! Some rough ground up and down on this one. So, on to Knockakishaun (390m). After crossing the Bunowen river at L863 743 C we headed N. atop the steep ridge and on to the spot hight 390 on generally very good ground. Some great glacial errata along the way before the 300m contour. Well worth the effort, the snow topped Sheefrys, Mweelrea and C. Patrick in close proximity giving an alpine foothills feeling!

Great picture

Really like the photograph [ in Jamessheerin's post ]. The rocks and walking pole in the foreground give a real sense of depth. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/853/comment/14699/
