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 583rd highest summit in Ireland. Mweelrea SE Spur is the second most southerly summit in the Mweelrea Mountains area.

Short Summary created by simon3,  21 Jun 2010
Probably most will come to the this summit before or after going to Mweelrea to which it is joined by a broad col extending NE. It has good views of the 12 Bens, the Maamturks etc and in particular of the nearly sheer east side of Mweelrea.
One way to reach this summit is from the vicinity of the Delphi Mountain Resort. There is parking at the centre (it's polite to buy a drink if you are using it) or beside the road including at a nearby bridge.
The quickest way is along a forest track starting at around L84080 64678 A. Walk east from there following the west side of the trees until you can reach the col between the first smaller top you pass (Teevnabinnia, name not shown on the OS) and Mweelrea SE Spur. Climb up from the col -- it becomes very steep but feasible. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/474/comment/5233/
