Would highly recommend a visit to Glenkeel Top. A hill situated amidst some fantastic scenery, I approached from Knockeirky without any great difficulty. Best saved for a good weather day, descent made by a green road situated under the steep south face of Knokierky. See track 4518 Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/749/comment/23202/
