Picture: Liam Lynch Monument
 
Colin Murphy on Crohan West, 2008
by Colin Murphy  18 Jul 2008
Used the Liam Lynch Monument as a starting point for a Crohan- Knockmeal- Knockfallia- Knocknagnauv circuit, which took me about 4.5 hours, and while the summits aren't exactly spectacular, it's a relatively pleasant walk and a provides a good ratio of summits-to-effort! Little to add to the information already on this page except to say that the Liam Lynch monument is worth a look - an impressive round tower (erected in 1935) about 20 metres high in the middle of the forest, and apparently marks the spot where Liam Lynch, anti-treaty republican leader in the civil war apparently met his end.
