Low hill at the end of a good filler walk for a bad day.
Short Summary created by simon3,  26 Apr 2011
The summit is the southerly extension of Knockboy and has good views over west Cork. It's easy to reach from the Priest's Leap road at a number of points such as V9894 6071 A. It's an easy enough walk of about 1500m to the top which has a small cairn, though you need to pick your route at times through some cliffs. Getting to the starting point by the narrow twisty road could almost be considered more exciting. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/540/comment/5299/
 
Round of Inchinagoum 3
by three5four0  15 Aug 2010
From Knockboy South Summit, we were able to descend directly, down grassy slopes, to the river. And re cross it, this time below the small dam / hydro workings. And climb directly up hill towards Coomhola, there are some atv tracks here.

There is new fencing being erected along this hill, of the awkward type too! We crossed at a fence junction at roughly V99398 59755 B, turning left here and making straight for the summit. Which gave more fine views in the evening sun, out to Bantry Bay.

We returned to the point we crossed the fence and continued on north, along side the fence, past pt464 to roughly V99347 60326 C, where we turned west and shortly reached the old track and descended to the road. Walked back up the road to the Priests Leap, where we had parked our car. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/540/comment/6018/
