There is a mapping problem regarding the names of several peaks in this area in that the Irish and English names are not matched up. The Irish version of Derrygarriff is given as Péicín, but this name clearly belongs to Peakeen Mountain. The correct Irish version is Doire Gharbh, which has been assigned (erroneously?) on the 1:25,000 map to the lower peak between Moll's Gap and Lough Barfinnihy.
Derrygarriff is the 591st highest summit in Ireland. Derrygarriff is the most westerly summit in the Mangerton area. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/481/
