Cnoc Fírinne is strongly associated with fairies. Mentioned in Aodhagán Ó Rathaille's poems and in the Fionn tales, it was regarded as the seat of a deity or fairy-king called Donn Fírinne. It was also the focus of a Lughnasa gathering. It seems that Fíreann ('truth') is a re-interpretation of an old personal name Frigriu, with genitive Frigrinn. For origin of name, see Ó Maolfabhail, LECL. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 201-06) for details of the festive assembly on the hill. Locally also spelt Knockfierna.   Knockfeerina is the 1177th highest place in Ireland. Knockfeerina is the most northerly summit and also the most easterly in the W Limerick/N Kerry area.

Short Summary created by paddyhillsbagger, simon3, jackill,  23 Jun 2012
You'll need to be careful where you park your car as there is very little room at the start of the track at R42615 35025 A. I parked on the grass verge just up the road towards Ballingarry but its not the best.
Walk along the track passing a house entrance on your right going uphill. At R42861 35447 B(164 mtrs) you'll pass a track junction on your left coming up from the roadside stone stile at R4194 3567 C, another possible start point . It is also possible to park further up the road, at around R4306 3564 D. Pass by a famine memorial stone and then through a gate just before the summit.
The limestone summit has an aerial, a cross and a trig pillar.

Alternative access point at R45200 35600 E. Car space beside house with red roof. Ask farm owner for permission. Was very helpful on day I went up. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/965/comment/5724/
