[RWD version 1 ] A jaunt around the Knockboys and Leim an Sagairt, which might be more appropriately named Leim an Caorán (bog) since that's what I seemed to be doing.
I had originally planned on doing the South top first then doing Knockboy and North top, but the going was so boggy to Leim an Sagart, I said I'd head straight for Knockboy. The going was much better than expected even after all the rain so I decided to takes in the North top and head for the South top. Going to the South top and from the South top back to the road is wet going, but very do-able. If the stream between the South Top and the road is in flood, there is what appears to be the remnant of an old bridge at V99503 60704 which there are some stones to cross.
It would be much better to follow this route in reverse, the last push up to Priests leap on the road is no fun after the boggy traverse from the South Top.
4 peaks above 500m in 3 hours: not to be sniffed at.
