Picture: The wooded summit of Knocknasheega from BroeMountain
Tree covered, heathery and unenchanted place.

One way of accessing this summit is from the forest entrance at Knocksculloge (S13175 06653). Walk up the track until you come to a junction. Turn left at this and walk to around A (S1396 0621). Then head SW into a ride aiming for B (S13782 06093) (215m at 241 degrees) where you go south along a ride to C (S13799 05992) and then right to the summit.
The top is in a ride with not-so-great views and no cairn.
Still the name if not the mountain has a claim to fame: Knocknasheega was the mythical name of King Brian of the Leprechaun's hill in "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" a 1959 Hollywood oirish film starring Albert Sharpe, and would you believe it, Sean Connery. (S005 272)2/maindetails Linkback:

Largely uninteresting top

There is little to recommend this top, the boggy summit area surrounded almost entirely by trees and the final approach requiring a lot of ducking and diving in and around dense, moss-covered forestry. Linkback:

The rub of the green
by Colin Murphy 20 Sep 2021
The last part of the ascent to this top involves a trudge through dense, boggy & mossy forestry, which left my rucksack and jacket a distinctly green colour. The only compensation were some unusually decorated trees. Linkback:
