The pronunciation of the name collected during the first Ordnance Survey, Bin a yoragaun, was not as one would expect from the current anglisation Ben Creggan. John O'Donovan interpreted this as Binn a Chorragain. This suggest that the Ben Creggan represents a slight re-interpretation of the name. Walks: for a route taking in Ben Gorm and Ben Creggan, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 60-61.   Ben Creggan is the second highest mountain in the Ben Gorm Mountains area and the 122nd highest in Ireland. Ben Creggan is the most northerly summit in the Ben Gorm Mountains area and also the most westerly.

The summit cairn on Ben Creggan on a very wet day. Below and to the west you would be able to see Delphi, Doo Lough and Mweelrea if it was clear. Hopefully someone will post a decent panoramic picture of the view. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/118/comment/491/
