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 378th highest summit in Ireland.

I took this picture of Gaugin when I driving in the Croaghs after climbing Lavagh More. Gaugin is a kidney shaped mountain. The concave east side is nearly always in shadow and very imposing looking. This picture is of the convex west side which is always brighter, although this makes the mountain look much smaller. I was struck by the amount of damage done by cutting down the forestry, really defaces the mountain. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/334/comment/1802/
