The first element may alternatively be Ir. tom, 'bush' or 'knoll'. Ir. aonach means 'a fair or assembly'. It is therefore curious that the mountain NW of Tomaneena is called Fair Mountain in English. Its Irish name is An Chaor. The valley below Fair Mountain is named Glenceera according to Price [PNCW]. Tomaneena is also known as Turlough Hill.   Tomaneena is the 137th highest place in Ireland.

Irish mountain forestry is often criticised for destroying scenery by being planted in boring straight lines. The ridge between Turlough Hill (Tomaneena) and Fair Hill sports this astonishing, almost comical, alternative. Does anyone have any idea why it was planted like this? Remember this is commercial forestry at 500 to 550 m elevation. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/136/comment/563/

Turlough Hill from a different perspective
by darrenf  28 Apr 2010
An interesting view of Tomaneena and its power station I thought, which was found on the spirt of ireland website www.spirtofireland.org

The website itself is well worth a read - if these proposed plans do go ahead they very well may change the landscape of the west coast in years to come.... Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/136/comment/4671/

Nothing to see here!

Took a walk up the access road having bagged Tonelagee earlier in the day. Turlough Hill is a pretty uninspiring mountain with no real distinct top. The ground behind the reservoir is littered with rocks from the nearby quarry - indeed the whole summit plateau is akin to an abandoned building site. Not a thing of beauty but it does give a great view back across the bulk of Tonelagee. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/136/comment/6124/

Picture: Trig
Was it worth it
by ewen  18 Dec 2016
I actually walked past Tomaneena today on the way to Camaderry up the access road from the Wicklow gap. I was in a total dwam so realised I'd have to do it on the way back which ruled out dropping to St Kevin's way.
A track leads up to it and the top is a few peat hags, bog, a rusty shack and a trig that doesn't seem to be the highest point. I went to the trig, went to the shack and then headed back down to the car. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/136/comment/18727/
