A watery end
by Colin Murphy  30 Mar 2022
My third Knocknabro in a day seemed, like its brothers, to be as dull as ditchwater until my descent brought some reward. I approached from the East top, which is about 1km south, and involves a slog though heather for most of the way. Featureless summit, unmarked, and barely noticeable as a separate entity. I decided to trudge my way directly west as a means of descent so that I could at least enjoy some views of Lough Glannatreaghaun beneath the Paps. This proved an effort, with unrelenting heather, marshy in places. And while I finally came in sight of the lough, the more rewarding sight was that of multiple small backlit waterfalls tumbling from the northern spur of Knocknabro West. A perfect spot for enjoying a well-earned lunch. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1454/comment/23460/
