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.

(part 2). The ridge climbs up to point 415 which is quite rocky and gave good views across the Bawinduff River valley to the montsrous looking hills of Nephin Beg and Glencar, the tops of which were obscured by cloud but the lower slopes dappled with sunlight. The remainder of this walk was also laid out to the S towards Corranabinnia and the ridge leading to Ben Gorm. There is a drop down from point 415m to an area of peat hags where cross a fence at the thoughtfully piled stones and then start the climb to the summit. Encountered a fox here which kept close tabs on me as it climbed before eventually disappearing. As height is gained the views open out over the surrounding hills to Clew Bay to the S and the peat lowlands away to the N. The summit is a rocky area with a small cairn. It was windy, cold and misty here with little to see until dropped down slightly to the S - fantastic panoramas then opened out over the bogland to the Atlantic and Achill Island with the immediate bulk of Corranabinnia disappearing upward into the mist and down to the double corrie loughs on its NW flank. Cross an area of stone and eroded peat on the descent from the summit, keeping to the edge of the corrie in the pic, where there is a fairly well defined track. I was drawn towards a massive glacial boulder sitting in contrast to its surroundings before heading for the slight drop to the col with Corranabinnia. (see for next part of walk).
