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 889th highest place in Ireland.

Easy though rough to get to, great views.
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill  24 May 2013
Park at a forest entrance R850 665 A , room for 5 cars, walk into the forest right at R844 663 B which will bring you through the forest onto moorland. As it peters out you have a rough 200 meter crossing this moor to the summit.
Note : the road that this entrance is on is marked in the Discovery series of maps as unpaved, as of 2009 it has a good tarmac surface which I followed all the way to the paved road to the south of the Silvermines near Cooleyhorney.
Another way up is via the Slieve Felim way. Leave this at R8389 6729 C. Go south and take a left turn after about 1500m, follow the track to a T junction turn right, then take a left turn until you reach open ground and the summit area.
Perhaps the quickest way up is to park at around R850 668 D Go uphill and east through mature trees eventually emerging onto the rough heather of the summit area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/779/comment/5538/
