The Irish form on the Discovery map is different from that found at logainm.ie: Cnoc an Óir, 'hill of the gold'. Knockanore is said to have been the scene of a great slaughter in ancient times. [OSNB] Tis said that there was a great monument erected in memory of the slaughter in the spot where the trigl. Station stands; it was called Lact na Fulla. [OSNB] This battle is mentioned in O'Sullevan Beare's Historiae Catholicae Iberniae Compendium. The tradition of a great battle is based on the intrepretation of the name as Cnoc an Áir [OSNB, OG], 'hill of the slaughter'.   Knockanore is the second highest hill in the North Kerry area and the 1248th highest in Ireland. Knockanore is the most northerly summit in the North Kerry area and also the most easterly.

An easy summit bag
by liz50  26 Sep 2020
Having visited the only other summit in the North Kerry group, Maulin we then tackled the highest which is 265m tall and must be the easiest summit to bag!. Following the directions given in earlier comments it was a pleasant stroll of 40m from car to trig point. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/984/comment/20904/
