This can be reached from the road south of Barrerneen at around V990 649 A. Ascend up a grassy slope towards the summit. Note that the OS 1:50k map positions the name “Knocknamanagh” around 2k further East. The summit affords good views of the ridge to the north east leading to Knocknamanagh NE and then Gullaba Hill (603m). These are shown in the photo.
