In a note on the townland of Dergroagh, James O'Kane says that it is sometimes called Cúl Gáigín. He also records the name Sruthán an Chut Chaoil in Dergroagh, which may relate to the same cleft feature from which Gáigín is named (JOK).   Gaugin Mountain is the 376th highest summit in Ireland.

Clear morning
by Wilderness  1 Jan 2014
Climbed this mountain not so long ago on one of the most clearest days I've ever seen. At the top we could see all across Ulster: Cuilcagh mtn in the south, Sperrins and Binevenagh in the east. We could even see the tops of the Mournes in the south east direction (95 miles away). Great day for climbing. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/334/comment/15295/
