This picture taken from Farbreaga in the western Knockmealdowns shows Cnoc an Tarbh as a prominent lump at the centre of a wider loop. There are deep sided valleys east west and south. In the picture the col connected to Lyracappul and Temple Hill is hidden from view. The sharper sided glen on the left (west) of the lump is Pidgeon Rock glen. You can make a nice loop around the surrounding peaks, including Monabrack. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/121/comment/23427/
