Short Summary created by aidand,  22 Jan 2014
Knockshegowna hill is situated a few miles south of Birr. The hill is privately owned and forms part of Fairymount Open Farm. The farm is open to the public though there is an entrance fee. There are a number of walking trails laid out, a small lake, picnic areas and a mountain bike trail. Full details are available on www.fairymountfarm.com. It's a pleasant enough place to visit, more for a family outing than a serious walk. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1276/comment/15520/
