Bedposts of the boggy bower.

Knocknagantee and Coomnacronia are two of the bedposts of the sagging mattress which is the upland bounded by them, Knockmoyle and Coomura to the north. A wild, remote spot made more difficult by a number of barbed wire fences.
One place to get a fine view of the cliffs of Knocknagantee is from the steep ground SW of Coomnacronia which is about 1km to the east, over Eagles Lough. Unusually the bigger cliffs of Knocknagantee, some 350m high, face east or south-east which you can see extending right from the top in the picture.
On the extreme right of the photo, Lough Coomanassig is just visible, though it is better seen in peterkerry's exciting picture. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/147/comment/6312/
