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.

"No comments so far about Knockoura", says the MV computer, which is hard to believe when you see scenery like this. Has nobody ventured up there? Well, I must admit I haven't either! I just took my pretty picture and headed on round the Ring of Beara. Still, I hope the photo will inspire someone to tackle all those benches (please do not adopt Coleridge's breakneck Broad Stand strategy) and let us know if it was worth it. I think this photo shows not Knockoura itself but the ridge of hills a little to the west above the old Bearhaven Copper Mines. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/485/comment/3596/
