A short diversion on a fantastic ridge walk.
Short Summary created by jackill  7 Mar 2023
Knockanafrinn South Top lies just to the SE of Clonmel and is separated from the main Comeragh range by a distinctive col. It's a rocky outcrop on the way to the main summit of Knockanafrinn. Great views abound incl. the northern coums of the Comeraghs, Slievenamon, Mt. Leinster and the Galtees/Knockmealdowns.

SW. Park at the busy but commodious Nire valley S 27674 12847 starA. Head east uphill on grassy then heathery slopes roughly following a line of white wooden posts. Go through a small gate in a sheep fence and follow the track uphill, downhill then gently uphill again to The Gap at S30103 13417 starB. Turn NW, keeping the fence and an increasing vertical drop to your right. It's one of the finest ridges in the country with excellent views on either side but the trail is quite eroded.

From the Nire valley car park you can also follow a trail along a spur directly to the S top and you can also reach The Gap from a trail starting at the end of the road approx. 500m S of the car park.

E. Start at S32203 14493 starC from where there is an official trail to the Gap. 30 minutes from the Gap will get you to the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1395/comment/18023/
