At a mere 330m Knockatee has a lowly elevation that belies it's ruggedness and stature.
From the road that crosses the col with Knockanoughanish it's a steep but brief pull up stone-strewn slopes. The summit lacks a cairn or pile of stones, but just below the summit is a plaque set into a boulder in memory of Richard Mersey, author of the excellent 'The Hills of Cork & Kerry'.
Although a bit of a toff (he purchased his walking poles from an exclusive store in Picadilly), he had from early childhood enjoyed roaming the hills of the south-west, particularly Beara. It's a personal and enjoyable guidebook, with some interesting B&W photography by Bernd Thee - hopefully it's still in print. It's nice to see a memorial to his name.
