Knocknadobar is a hill of pilgrimage. The stations of the cross were erected by Canon Brosnan in 1855. One of the wells referred to in the name is St. Fursey's Well, located at the foot of the mountain, near the start of the pilgrimage route to the summit. It is visited for a cure for eye complaints. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 137-39) for details of the mountain pilgrimage.   Knocknadobar is the highest mountain in the Iveragh NW area and the 127th highest in Ireland.

Fourth time lucky
by liz50  25 Aug 2020
Having been on the summit of Knocknadobar on 3 previous occasions without seeing more than cloud, mist and rain I got lucky on my fourth attempt with a clear bright day.. Having made a direct approach from our staycation accommodation on the southern slope of Kells mountain which was steep and over rough ground to the summit of Kells East and Kells main top passing by Glendalough lakes nestled below the spur leading to Knocknadobar. We followed the Pilgrim Path down which is marked by 14 fine white stations of the cross to the carpark at V481 830 A. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/123/comment/20867/
