Agnew's Hill is probably the peak marked as Benwellerorie on Mercator's map of SE Ulster, 1595. Rory's Glen is a townland on the SE slopes, named after Rory Ogue McQuillan [OSM, vol. x, p. 118]. Benwellerorie may represent an anglicisation of *Binn Mhaol Ruairí, 'Rory's bare peak'. The English name is derived from the Agnews (Ir. Ó Gníomh), a family of Scottish stock who came to prominence in this area in the 17th century after the decline of the McQuillan's fortunes.   Agnew's Hill is the 646th highest summit in Ireland.

North of the summit and over a road is the 2km long arc of Sallagh Braes, a spectacular semicircle of a valley where the higher ground to the west (left) falls away towards the sea.

This picture was taken from the south end of the valley. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/533/comment/14991/
