This is one of the most common names for a pass in Ireland. The name is actually marked on lower peaks to the E, and it seems likely that the gap in question is even further to the E.   Barnanageehy is the 389th highest summit in Ireland. Barnanageehy is the most easterly summit and also the second most northerly in the Slieve Mish area.

Barnanageehy surely must be near enough for a resident of Tralee, or at least Blennerville, to reach on foot without difficulty. One way of getting there is to walk south of Blennerville towards Q816 103 B where the tarmac road stops and a dirt track starts. Follow this up to some traditional bog workings which, as of Nov 2005, were in use. Some interesting bog wood has been exposed there incidentally. Looking over Tralee the wind power station on Stack's mountain is very visible. Many of us believe that we need windpower and that this relatively low site is appropriate. However , it also gives an indication of what we may see in future if proposed developments in places such as Meenteog/ Coomacarrea on the Iveragh peninsula are implemented. That ridge is at 700m and is clearly visible from the Slieve Mish area.

Barnanageehy turns out to be just slightly the highest bump on a ridge that extends from East to West eventually joining up with Glanbrack Mountain, a long easterly spur off Baurtregaum and almost a summit in its own right.
