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.

Dramatic cliffs, bogs and rough ground surround this peak.
Short Summary created by simon3,  26 Apr 2011
There is dramatic ground all around Finnararagh/ An Corrán however the top is fairly tame and there are fairly easy ways up provided you are careful.
From the south you can possibly start on the track leading off the public road at V69259 71239 A. Ask permission at the house there. The track (it's the west of two shown leading from Fermoyle) has a stony surface until you reach the Small River. Head NE for the top. If you veer right you will avoid steeper ground with its cliffs.
From the north one way is to park near Cloon Lough at V 708 788 B. Walk up to Coomura then round the River Deecagh valley going past V 688 737 C and up to the summit.
Attractions include the 310m cliffs down to Lough Coomeen to the east and fine views over the Kenmare river. There's a narrow challenging ridge NE towards Sallagh and eventually towards Mullaghanattin. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/160/comment/4920/
