Knockadigeen Hill
by YoungJohn  26 Apr 2010
I stopped at road works near Templederry, having approached from Borrisoleigh, and was kindly told by a Council Worker cum fellow Hillwalker that the best access was to go through Templederry village heading due south and uphill. To go a mile plus from the village and take the first right. Then a short distance later to turn left after a concrete watertower. Then to travel a half mile to a farm house and park up beside an old farm gate leading to a very old boreen. This I did and I followed the old boreen past the stone ruins of an old village long abandoned. I followed this to its end then I climbed over a wire fence and headed across a large open field, climbing all the time at a 40% plus angle. I came across an old lane or access road but kept traversing uphill to the heather line finding the lane again to take me through the forestry (brushing past two or three sitka spruce a couple of times). The forest was of pine and it opened into a clearing at the top to reveal a trig and some grand views though these were limited by the haze that was about today the 9.03.10. I thankfully had my phone cum camera and got a couple of nice photo's. I could see Keeper, The Arra Mountains, Slieve Bernagh and Lough Derg. Northwards the Devilsbit range and way off in the haze the Slieve Blooms. Knockanora looked proudly across at Knockadigeen, its cairn prominent and the ancient hill fort below brown with ferns or bracken. The climb was steep in places and took about 35 minutes or so. Reminiscent of Gortagarry beside the 'Bit due to the trees but well worth a visit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/823/comment/4493/
