This hill is named Knockane Ichyatow in the Civil Survey of 1654-56, where it is mentioned as part of the boundary of the barony of Owney and Arra. The second part of this name may represent the genitive of the surname Ó Céatfhadha, still found in this corner of Tipperary, and anglicised Keaty (when not adapted to the more common name Keating). If so, Knockane Ichyatow would represent Ir. Cnocán Uí Chéatfhadha, 'Keaty's hillock'.   Knockane is the 886th highest place in Ireland.

I drove to forestry entrance R850 665 A where I startled a family of grazing deer. The forestry track will bring you to R844 663 B where you turn right and continue along the track until it emerges from the forestry and comes to an end at a turning circle R846 666 G. The summit is on your left, about 200m across rough ground. Great view of Keeper. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/779/comment/14974/
