The fast and the furious.

Knocknaskagh is a fairly prominent hill in North Cork. It's possible to access via a Coilte forest entrance on the South East side mentioned by jackill. After about 500 metres, there is a smaller, muddier track on the left that zig zags up the hill. Take this and ensure to keep the forest on your left without taking any of the tracks that lead into the trees. After awhile the mess of felled trees will give way to open mountain, here turn left and head up hill for a few hundred metres to the trig point. The day I bagged this hill, I met 6 people on dirt bikes and three on quad bikes and I could hear the engines revving for my entire hike. That coupled with a very wet muddy track and a hill that is a jumble of felled trees made for a fairly forgettable experience. It was nice to look North to see Seefin and Slievereagh which I had climbed earlier in the day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/702/comment/20415/
