A short sortie if you are on Knockboy
Short Summary created by jackill, simon3  8 Apr 2013
Park at V98530 61072 A , a gravel area next to a commemorative stone for "The Priests Leap" room for 2 cars. There are options for parking also before and after this. Cross the first of many sheepwire fences and make your way to the shores of Lough Boy, here pick up another fence to the north of the lake and follow it to the summit trig and small cairn of Knockboy, drop north of Knockboy to reach the North top. Views of the Shehys to the east, the 'Reeks to the north and the Cahas to the west. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/198/comment/4958/

This is a minor northern spur from Knockboy, not really meriting being considered an independent top. This photo is taken from Lough Nambrackdarrig. The highest hill on the skyline is Knockboy, with the North Top being beneath it to the right. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/198/comment/445/
