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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/198/comment/445/
