The name makes no sense as applied to a summit. However, nearby is the Glennamong River, S.E. of the summit, flowing into L. Feeagh, so Glennamong is clearly the valley through which the river flows. OSNB mentions it only as a townland name, not that of a peak, so the error may have arisen at the stage of printing the 6 map. Walks: for a route taking in Bengorm, Corranabinnia and Glennamong, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 72-73.   Glennamong is the 242nd highest summit in Ireland.
