Height:229mOS 1:50k Mapsheet: 23Grid Reference: F86851 43193This summit has been logged as climbed by 9 members. Recently by: IainT, sandman, Garmin, chalky, leader1, savage, , mendrit, quino70 I have climbed this summit: NO (You need to be a logged-in member to change this.)
This peak has no name on OS maps. Has been called Doomara, though Doonmara is properly the name of a headland to the NE. Judging from OS maps and Bald's map, the name Barradeegin seems properly to refer to the top of the valley of the Gweedaney River, which is a little to the west, but the name has been borrowed for this hill in the absence of a better alternative.
Barr an Dígín is the 1329th highest summit in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1022/
