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 640th highest summit in Ireland.

Short climb
Short Summary created by paddyhillsbagger,  7 Mar 2013
Turning left off the A36 from Larne at Kilwaughter leads you up to the Old Freehold area at the foot of Agnew's Hill at over 300m. There are a few single car parking spots before and after the starting point at D329 028 A where the Ulster Way crosses the road. Climb over the style and follow the Ulster Way posts to the summit plateau. There is a short steep haul followed by a gentle climb on soft to boggy terrain common to the Antrim Hills. A couple of styles help you over the fences. The cairn is soon reached but the actual summit is further south. Take your pick of another style or an Ulster Way post. Up and down in about an hour. An easy bag. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/533/comment/5292/
