This was my guess at the new route/finish of the Knockmealdown Crossing/Challenge that takes place on the 8th April 2017.
It's not 100% accurate.
You don't have to go up on Knockardbounce, just go through the saddle between itself and Knocknasculloge. Knockardbounce is very wet and you'll have crotch high heather.
As you descend on the path near Barrancullia/Clashganny West you pass through two gates, just before you reach the third gate you turn left and descend a steep slope to the stream and then follow the path down and this brings you to the East Munster Way. If you don't you'll encounter a bull and shin high muck.
It will be marked next week. So no worries.
PS: I can assure you it took longer than the time indicated above, even though I was walking with Hannukkah.
