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.
