A hat tip to Captain Vertigo's track 2038 with more accurate ascent/descent tracking. Great views on a clear day. A loop from the Vee over the Eastern Knockmealdowns.
The return via forest tracks doesn't provide much excitement apart from the Liam Lynch Memorial at the foot of Crohan.
The route is described in Helen Fairbairn's "Ireland's Best Walks".
Useless fact: With the naked eye I was pretty sure that I could make out Capel Island in the sea south of Youghal. That's about 39km south of Knockmealdown summit. Obviously there's very little in the way of high ground south of the Knockmealdowns.
