Ir. clár can mean both a plain and a board. In the latter sense it can refer to a plank-bridge in some place-names. Thus Derryclare, from Ir. Doire Chláir, could either mean 'oak-wood of the plain' or 'oak-wood of the plank-bridge'. The name seems to have been transferred by the Ordnance Survey from the townland of Derryclare situated to the east to the mountain itself. In this respect the Ir. name Binn Doire Chláir makes much more sense as a mountain name.   Binn Doire Chláir is the 151st highest summit in Ireland. Binn Doire Chláir is the second most easterly summit in the Twelve Bens area.

This little lake may not look much, but according to David Herman [Hill Walkers Connemara and Mayo] it is the only one on the Glencoaghan Horseshoe. It is located a short distance north of the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/146/comment/987/
