This is one of the most common names for a pass in Ireland. The name is actually marked on lower peaks to the E, and it seems likely that the gap in question is even further to the E.   Barnanageehy is the 342nd highest summit in Ireland. Barnanageehy is the most easterly summit and also the second most northerly in the Slieve Mish area.

A long easy ascent from the roadside
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, jackill  29 May 2014 Start at Quarry Hill car park Q83642 07816 (Point A) ,room for many cars and walk uphill and west on a track initially. It should be noted that half way up this track you encounter a locked gate with a big yellow 'Restricted Access' sign. The track continues past various aerials and power supply buildings and ends at open hillside. If you have any concerns regarding using this track, there is pretty open access to the hillside just past the start of the track. After that you will have a little over an hour's walk to the summit, heading directly west for 3km until the last 500m when you veer slightly NW. The climb is fairly gentle (the starting point is already at 300m), crossing a number of rolling hills, none of which are much of a challenge. Going underfoot is mostly firm, a mixture of long grass and some heather. The unremarkable summit is marked by a pile of rocks. 2.5 hours to top and back.
Point A: Q83642 07816

by simon3  15 Dec 2005 Barnanageehy surely must be near enough for a resident of Tralee, or at least Blennerville, to reach on foot without difficulty. One way of getting there is to walk south of Blennerville towards Q816 103 (Point B) where the tarmac road stops and a dirt track starts. Follow this up to some traditional bog workings which, as of Nov 2005, were in use. Some interesting bog wood has been exposed there incidentally. Looking over Tralee the wind power station on Stack's mountain is very visible. Many of us believe that we need windpower and that this relatively low site is appropriate. However , it also gives an indication of what we may see in future if proposed developments in places such as Meenteog/ Coomacarrea on the Iveragh peninsula are implemented. That ridge is at 700m and is clearly visible from the Slieve Mish area.

Barnanageehy turns out to be just slightly the highest bump on a ridge that extends from East to West eventually joining up with Glanbrack Mountain, a long easterly spur off Baurtregaum and almost a summit in its own right.

The photo shows Barnanageehy's mini cairn with Baurtregaum on the skyline to the right.
Point B: Q816 103

by simon3  6 Jan 2006 Just over 200m to the NW lies the decaying metalwork of a microwave reflector, unfortunately obscuring the otherwise great view towards Fenit. According to Sean O Suilleabhain [Irish Walk Guides South West 1978] the was used to bounce microwave signals from Tralee to LImerick and was locally called the Iron Man. Sean recounts the safety issues encountered by some of the staff: "After the experience of having some men lose their way in fog (they had ascended the north side and descended the south side unintentionally), all staff members now leaving Tralee are provided with a compass and a list of compass bearings between the poles which were erected along the route,..." There's only a few of the poles left and it is interesting to clarify how they got there.
