Knockeirky and its 30 metre prominence
After moving one summit east, we continued to the col between Cushnaficulla and Knockeirky to measure the height.

I made the cols lowest point, to be around the bottom of the letter i in Cushnaficulla. The GPS was duly set on the ground and left to settle for 15 mins, before taking the reading. And the reading was 543m, i then took a reading holding the GPS in my hand and it gave the same height. So, it would appear to have the sufficient prominence for inclusion in the Arderins list.

Needless to say we continued to the summit, and as mentioned in the other postings, it is a wild and remote top, magic!
