Hungry Hill is the title of a novel by Daphne du Maurier based on the story of the family of her friend, Christopher Puxley, whose family acquired Dunboy Castle and its lands after the defeat of Donal Cam O'Sullivan Beare. The copper mines located on the hill in the novel are in reality further west near Allihies. The second element of the Irish name, Cnoc Daod, has long been regarded as obscure, but it is probably simply a dialectal variant of déad meaning ‘tooth’, ‘jaw’ or ‘set of teeth’. A family living at the foot of the hill are known locally as the Bun Daods.   Hungry Hill is the highest mountain in the Caha Mountains area and the 135th highest in Ireland. Hungry Hill is the second most southerly summit in the Caha Mountains area. Hungry Hill is the third highest point in county Cork.

Picture: Towards Knocknagree
Surrounded by walls of rock
by Colin Murphy  16 May 2011
Besides its own amazing aspect of giant sloping ridges of rock, the ascent of Hungry Hill from the north offers spectacular views to the west of the eastern face of Knocknagree East top, itself a solid mass of rock rising to 461m above the beautiful Glanmore Valley, complete with waterfall, which winds its way into a lush green pasture. Accompanying shot gives some small sense of this view. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/130/comment/6352/
