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 590th highest summit in Ireland. Derrygarriff is the most westerly summit in the Mangerton area.

Left car at Gowlane where the old Kenmare Killarney road meets a council road (v917 751 A). Walked about 2 km north along the old road, to the highest point, and turned west towards Peaken. From there continued to Peakeen West, and across a number of summits just marked by their heights 525 and 526 on the Harveys Superwalker map, before descending to the wouth west tip of Erik Lough - peculiar name, can't help but wonder if this is a misspelling on the maps as Eirk (not Erik) is a towland around here. This is about 2 hours from the car, but perhaps could be made shorter by skirting all the peaks. From there climbed Derrygarriff to the west. Reasonablt straightforward, bit of a scramble for about 20 minutes. The views are lovely. Walked west along the summit, the maps show two distinct peaks of similar height, the ground is quite level along this stretch, maybe a descent and ascent of 20/30 yards. There is a fence which divides the summit, there are no signs but think it might be wise to stay to the south of the fence as know there are signs warning trespassers near the car park at Molls Gap on the other side of the land. One can continue along the fence and come back to a public road at v863 770 B, or retrace ones steps. I pressed on to Foardal and back down to the old Kenmare Killarney road. Again, if one takes this route you should go back around the south and east of the Lake rather than trying to cross the fenced off farmland.
