The one that nearly got away
Short Summary created by jackill  9 Mar 2011
Park at V78640 53567 A, room for 3 cars. If the shop is closed parking is also possible at V78656 5346. There is a rough track leading east from the highest point of the pass.Pick your way upwards around easy, rock shelfs onto a level rocky ridge. As you leave this ridge look for a grassy slope on the side of Knockowen to ascend to the summit cairn on a low rock shelf.
Carry on from Knockowen to Cushnaficulla.
Drop down then over rocky ground to a broad grassy col before the final easy walk to the rocky summit marked by a small cairn. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1056/comment/6079/

New summit, new comment!
by three5four0  5 Sep 2010
A fine traverse over Knockowen & Cushnafulla leads to Knockeirky from the Healy pass road. We took in Stockeenalackareha on the way back, but why not take in Cummeenbaun as well. To make a horse shoe walk above the fine and wild Glenrastel? Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1056/comment/6083/

Crossing from Healy to Caha
by jackill  31 Oct 2010
Its not often we get to add a new summit to Mountainviews, but not so long ago it happened.
The initial suggestion was made by Mountainviews member Conor74.
And what a location, high in the Cahas glowering over Glenrastel to the north, the glistening , soggy isolation of Glenlough Mountains lake laden plateau stretching to the south.
Knockeirky doesn't look so distinctive from Knockowen, but its eastern approaches are the most impressive. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1056/comment/6154/
