Canon Power names the main hills of Lismore and Mocollop parish as Knockmaeldown, 2609 ft, and Knocknarea, 2149 ft (PND). This latter height translates to 655m, which shows that it is an alternative name for Knocknagnauv. Cnocán na Ré means 'little hill of the flat top'.   Knocknagnauv is the 185th highest place in Ireland.

After our brief stop on Knockmealdown, the journey east along the county boundary took a steep downhill to about 520metres before crossing the gap and uphill again to Knocknagauv's summit. We lunched on the Tipperary side of the boundary where we discovered a bit of a high point in the wall, and where we could get a little respite from the Southerly gale, and this sustained us enough to continue the journey to the top of K'gauv. Unfortunately, weather conditions were so bad I can't give a comentary, good or bad for this summit, but I'm sure it's quite nice if you could see the hand in front of your face!
