This peak itself has no name on the Discovery map. However, a spot slightly to the west is named Tawnagradia on the OS 6 inch map. Breandán S. Mac Aodha suggests Tamhnach na gCreathaidí, 'green field of the small seed potatoes' as a possible interpretation (MNIMA, 147). If correct, this would be a graphic illustration of the desperate farming conditions here in the past, given the altitude, remote location and rugged terrain. Previously Derreennawinshin in MV.   Mweelrea SE Spur is the 544th highest place in Ireland. Mweelrea SE Spur is the second most southerly summit in the Mweelrea Mountains area.
