The name Glanaprehane probably refers to the steep glen N of Caherbarnagh rather than this peak.   Caherbarnagh NW Top is the 156th highest place in Ireland. Caherbarnagh NW Top is the second most northerly summit in the Paps/Derrynasaggart area.

In need of some rocks
by thomas_g  1 Apr 2012
Approached Caherbarnagh NW from Knocknagowan via Caherbarnagh, I had planned to head on to Knocknabro and back up the road in Clydagh valley, but the going is so tough over the tussocky boggy ground from Clydagh I decided to head back the way I came.
The views to the North are lovely and the valley between Caherbarnagh NW and Caherbarnagh looks like a great climb, I'm sure it's horribly slippery though.
Reaching the summit of Caherbarnagh NW, I came across a tiny cairn which needs some urgent help, so if you've got some room in your backpack for a few rocks, you know what to do. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/157/comment/6745/
