Finnararagh is a corruption of Finnavogagh, the name of an area of rough pasture on the plateau W of this peak. The name is correctly recorded in the Ordnance Survey Name Book, but was misspelt when transferred to the map. The peak itself is locally called An Corrán, which aptly describes its crescent-shaped cliffs that dominate Lough Coomeen.   An Corrán is the 165th highest summit in Ireland.

A Beautiful Ridge Walk
by sandman  30 Jul 2012
You have a choice of two starting points for this walk at V71137 72289 A where there is ample parking. Park here and walk back 50 meters approx to farm track, up to farm sheds keeping left in farm yard pass through gate, truning right heading to rusted gate at V70294 72080 B following fence to ridge and turning right at V69796 72271 C follow this fence to V70223 73115 D and turn left for summit.
Or you can start at V71707 72935 E, but be advised there is only room for one car - this is the easier opotion as there is a farm track not shown on OS78 that will bring you up close to point V69796 72271 C - this option was only visible to me on my decent. - From summit of Finnararagh follow ridge across to Sallagh - Beann Far SW Top ( My 500th summit) and Beann SW Top after which you will begin your decent at V72074 74744 F follow fence and river but bear in mind you are heading for farm track at V72107 75973 G which will bring you down the valley to farm yard - very nice farmer - and back to car. The walk takes circa 5 hours with fantastic views over Cloon Lough and back towards Coomura Mountain. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/160/comment/14738/
