When is the Hags Tooth not the Hags Tooth?
by Conor74  15 Nov 2011
So what is the story with the name?

I seem to recall that in some book or source (perhaps Mersey's Hills of Cork and Kerry, perhaps Ryans excellent guide to the Reeks, perhaps even here), I read a suggestion that the Hag's Tooth was not the pinnacle which is commonly given that name, and that the Hag's Teeth were in fact the similar if slightly less dramatic outcrops of rock further east on the slops of Knockbrinnea. So I checked up the historic 6 inch maps and indeed there the Hags Teeth are these latter features. This particular chimney of rock is in the area called Stumpeenaduff on the historic maps (and as noted in the main entry above). The poster "Winter Climbing around Carrauntoohill" which is an excellent guide to the names of individual climbs in the area (and I think was compiled with the input of local experts like Con Moriarty) also notes this feature as "Stumpa an tSaimh" and the ones to the east as "Fiacail Mhór (Hag's Tooth).

I also seem to have a vague memory of reading that the reason for the confusion was that some writer such as Coleman or maybe Hart had made an error that had "stuck". Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/193/comment/6628/
