Knockboy is the highest point in Co. Cork, although its summit is shared with Co. Kerry. It is less spectacular than some of the hills further west, such as Hungry Hill. It is perhaps a surprise that Cork's highest point is lower than Mount Leinster on the boundary between Carlow and Wexford, two counties which are hardly known for their mountains. All of this goes to show that ruggedness and height do not always go hand in hand.
Knockboy is the highest mountain in the Shehy/Knockboy area and the 106th highest in Ireland. Knockboy is the highest point in county Cork. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/104/?PHPSESSID=oso4d7mfinv0btbq9etir7qea4
