I walked over this top on 11 07 08 on my way out and back to Baunreaghcong along the Ridge of Capard. As far as I can determine Pt 483 on the ridge is known locally as Clarnahinch and not the Ridge of Capard which is really the ridge leading up to it. One written source for this is the EastWest Mapping Guide to the Slieve Bloom Way. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/505/comment/3233/
