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 893rd highest place in Ireland.

So-so summit and so, so easy
by Colin Murphy  17 Oct 2022
If you're looking for an easy bag, you've come to the right place. Most of the walk is up the track from the east described elsewhere. The final 200m is across heather and grass but even that has a narrow trail if you can find it. And you will only do an ascent of 90m over about 1.3km. Took me less than 20 minutes to reach high point. Good views of Keeper Hill. As I was departing in car I crossed an old bridge across the Mulkeir River, which provided my only real decent view of the day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/779/comment/23706/
