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.

Glennamong forms the northerly summit of a horseshoe walk starting from NW of Lough Feagh. From it there are fine views in many directions. This picture shows Nephin on the skyline to the right of the cairn. To the right again is Birreencorragh, a convoluted mountain with a long central north south ridge and various smaller ridges leading off to West (Mount Eagle) and East (Knockaffertagh). Viewed from Glennamong, which is to its west, the profile of the central NS ridge is well displayed. Only just visible in the small version of this picture is Lough Conn, some 25k away.

The cairn shown here is perhaps 40m south of the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/232/comment/626/
