You know how there usually isn't a stile where you really need one? And have you noticed the advice on MV that one should always use a stile when one is available? Well, make haste to Knockullane because Mr Jackill's large parking space has one...all nice and green and (kinda) shiny. It even has instructions as to how to use it, instructions that put me in mind of 'The Ladder' at Funland in the first episode of 'Father Ted'. So if you feel the need to brush up on your stile climbing technique, this hill is for you: all you need is the ability to overlook the fact that the stile spans and is within about four yards of the end of a fence that you could easily step over anyway.

For anyone who's actually come to do Knockullane,'s hard to imagine anyone following a route up other than the one Jackill mentions, but I'd like to add that a) the forest ride is one of those ones that conceals some mightily squishy sections under a facade of benign-looking vegetation b) the top is tussocky tough going, and c) it wasn't easy to conclusively identify the highest point amongst several plausible swellings even with the assistance of DBloke's GPS. I plumped for the one over the fence on the edge of the forest (just about visible on the right of the photo), and most of Cork's insect life seemed to agree with me.

These shenanigans were enough for us as the rain began to persist more persistently, so we retreated to the car without doing the East Top which looked worse. I know I may lay on my deathbed unable to shake the nagging sense of disappointment that probably goes with not having done Knockullane East Top, but for now that's a chance I'm willing to take.
