The Irish form on the Discovery map is different from that found at logainm.ie: Cnoc an Óir, 'hill of the gold'. Knockanore is said to have been the scene of a great slaughter in ancient times. [OSNB] Tis said that there was a great monument erected in memory of the slaughter in the spot where the trigl. Station stands; it was called Lact na Fulla. [OSNB] This battle is mentioned in O'Sullevan Beare's Historiae Catholicae Iberniae Compendium. The tradition of a great battle is based on the intrepretation of the name as Cnoc an Áir [OSNB, OG], 'hill of the slaughter'.   Knockanore is the highest hill in the North Kerry area and the 1236th highest in Ireland. Knockanore is the most northerly summit in the North Kerry area and also the most easterly.

You can drive all the way to the viewpoint or walk about a mile from the main road. For such a small hill the view is simply stunning. Well worth a visit if in the area Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/984/comment/17551/
