The valley between the Knockaterriffs (on the left in the picture) and Lyracappul South East contains this stream, “Blackrock River”. A ruined track, marked on the OS 1:50k map, crosses it to the left of the picture and then does a zig-zag onto Lyracappul South East (lower right of the picture). Like other south facing valleys on the Galtees this one is more V shaped than the valleys on the north side. Note the outcrops on the left, which are under Knockaterriff.
