Lanigans Tower
by aidand  14 Mar 2011
Knockanora is known locally as Lanigans Tower. The usual route up starts through the forest entrance at Latteragh. This is off the main Nenagh -Thurles road. There is plenty of parking. The walk up through the woods is pleasant enough, with some fine views over the surrounding countryside. There is a decent pull up the last stretch to the top. The views off the top are excellent in all directions. Allow about 3 hours at a leisurely pace. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/677/comment/6272/
