We meet at 09:00 at the Fishery Killorglin and drive the Ring of Kerry towards Cahirciveen.  Just before the town we turn right at Deelis bridge and proceed to the spacious car park at the start of the path to Knocknadubber.   This path is very well defined although hear and there alternative tracks are available. It is fairly steep in places but the many zig zags alleviate its gradient.    Following the line of crosses we arrive at a massive cross,  This is not the true summit however as the actual summit is  a small bit further.  Having rested and admired the wonderful views we will return to the car park aling the same track.
