It's very much a Kerry mountain...
by Conor74  23 Aug 2010
Knockanaoughanish is miles within the Kerry border. The county bounds helpfully follows the main spine of the Cahas, from the top of Hungry Hill up along past Derryclancy and on to Knockowen, Cushnaficulla and Baureragh - I say helpfully because it kinda makes geographical sense and it looks right! As one walks between those mountains there are a lot of cairns along the route between the peaks, and not just at the summits themselves, so I assumed they were used for delineating the county bounds in the areas between those heights.

Even the county bounds on the Ardgroom side runs from the top of Hungry Hill to its highest neighbours to the north, the mountains at the back of the 'Pocket'. So the top of the range was the dividing line on all sides in the Beara peninsula.

Indeed, the Diocese of Kerry incorporates all of the Cahas, as it takes in all the Beara peninsula. I had heard that the only reason the Beara peninsula was split at all and was not wholly allocated to Kerry was because nationalist feeling always ran high there so they though that to split it between two administrations would dilute this feeling. Of course that may be myth, and there may be a wholly more boring explanation.

Oh and finally there is a Knockanaguish mountain quite near, outside Kenmare in the Mangerton group. Clearly 'hills of loneliness' were popular round these parts. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/858/comment/6050/
