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.

Travelled to the Nephin Begs after climbing Nephin earlier in the day - a drive through some great countryside and a rough forest road into Letterkeen Wood which cuts through the heart of the range.

There are ample parking opportunities in the wood with a hostel and laybys for picnics, I parked at one of these at roughly 975054 E. There is a standing stone here with a plaque comemerating the contribution of locals who emigrated to America. I walked back up the track, turning left and following the signs for the Western Way and Bangor Trail. There were great views here W towards Buckoogh and Birreencorragh which were bathed in late evening sunshine, giving me some great pictures. Arrive at the bothy and detailed information boards for both of the waymarked trails. The bothy is sizeable inside and would provide decent if basic shelter for ther night. Continue along, crossing footbridge over the Altaconey River on the Bangor Way and passing an area next to the river used for camping, which I made use of the next day. The track is well worn and easy to follow alongside the river initially, with forest to the right. Gradual climb before a steeper section to a crest where take ridge off to the left which leads to the summit of Glennamong (eventually). It was getting pretty dark so I camped down for the night on the high ground here in heavy mist. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/232/comment/1913/
