The Bearhaven copper mines, located to the west of Knockoura on the low but rugged hills above Allihies, were run by the Puxley family of Dunboy. Daphne du Maurier relocated them on Hungry Hill for her novel of the same name.
Knockoura is the highest hill in the Slieve Miskish area and the 595th highest in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/485/
