What a view from this easily accessible ridge, just drive to the carpark at Coillte Knockanroe (R84440 69415) (388 mtrs.) and off you go. The bulk of Keeper hill towering on one side and the Arra mountains with the Shannon and Lough Derg on the other. The Silvermines area has mined for Lead, Zinc,Copper, Sulphides and Barites for well over 1500 years with official records dating back to the 1600s. Mining finally ceased here in 1993.
This area now is designated a forest recreation area by Coillte under the name Knockanroe. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/519/comment/3637/

Simple and straightforward
by Colin Murphy 17 Oct 2022
A really simple bag this. All of 20 minutes to reach top. Misty most of the way, so limited views. I did pass a section of forest that appears to have fallen victim to a fire. I was a bit creepy in the mist and reminded me of images I'd seen of WW1's Somme battlefield. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/519/comment/23704/
