Crossing from Healy to Caha

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/
