Changed to have main name Na Cnámha in consultation with Kerry Mountain Rescue (Gerry Christie) and OSi to avoid confusion with The Bone a spur NE of Cnoc na Toinne   Na Cnámha is the 8th highest place in Ireland.

Who named it that?

I've never heard the high point of the Beenkeeragh ridge called 'The Bones' - anyone know the origin of the name as it's certainly not used by the local walkers or climbers down in the Kingdom. There is 'The Bone' ridge further east along the Reeks walk though... Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/7/comment/6307/
