Knocknaboley is the name of a townland, though obviously it originally applied to a hill, and indeed may have referred to the same peak as Corriebracks.   Corriebracks is the 470th highest place in Ireland.

Picture: Corriebracks from the south.
 
Flat, undistinguished peak, sometimes useful in passing.
Short Summary created by simon3  23 Oct 2021
Corriebracks is an extremely flat summit with no particular feature on the top. It has reasonably good long range views from the top, including the Silsean and Moanbane area. It could be considered as a pair with Church Mountain to the NW.
One way of reaching the top is by starting from the forest entrance N 97440174 A. Follow the track as far as it goes and then beyond in the same SE direction until you reach a boggy ride. Turn right (SW) up this and head for the summit, leaving the forest at around N9726 0081 B. The top is around 730m SW of there over thick heather. (Note, as of 2011, the track is not fully shown on the OS 1:50k).
It's also possible to reach the top from Lobawn, or using a track from Luglass to the north or from Church Mountain. It is possible therefore to use Corriebracks in bigger walks. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/392/comment/5151/
