These are indeed surprising small hills of the Slieve Felim rising above the Tipperary plains under explored and under appreciated, there is nothing dramatic or magnificent about them but rather they are more local, more familiar and all the more interesting for it. An abundance of twisty little roads that degenerate to rutted medieval tracks tumbling over narrow passes into deep, dark unexpected valleys. You can feel the time under your boots as you tramp the tracks of drovers and rapparees, saints and heroes. After passing through the sleepy village of Hollyford, once a major crossing point for the Slieve Felims used by O'Sullivan Beare, Red Hugh O'Donnell and Patrick Sarsfield, I parked my cart at a small field entrance at R94525 53427 A and began my ramble over Lackenacreena, Glenaneagh, Ring hill and Knockbane. I crossed the road and over a gate across tilled fields to the summit of Lackenacreena and from there to points beyond Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/771/comment/3563/
