Just a brief note that the field surrounding the trig point on Knockbrack is currently very definitely planted (with something that a suburbanite such as myself can't identify...doesn't look like weeds, I know that much) and as such care should be taken to locate the tractor trail leading past the pillar. In the pic the summit is on the summit is pretty much on the skyline where the track meets it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1321/comment/17619/
