The track to the summit makes Knocknagantee one of the more easily accessible peaks on the long, remote ridge between Ballaghbeama and Coomakista. The Irish form is given as Cnoc na gCáinte in Toponomia Hiberniae, but the meaning of the second element and the background to the name are unclear. The translation tentatively provided here takes the second element as cáinte, an adjective meaning ‘blamed, blameworthy’, in the genitive plural.
Cnoc na gCáinte is the 152nd highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/147/
