Easy path to follow.
Short Summary created by YoungJohn  3 Nov 2011
My car was parked at the 9 stones. While decending from the clouds covering Mt. leinster I saw the ciarn on the top of Knockroe and couldn't resist. I followed the wide 'path' or cut away to its zenith. This took about 20 minutes. The path is clear so easy to find ones way even in the cloud which unfortunately decended just as I reached the mid sized cairn. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/376/comment/5135/
