Beenbo Hill Gob an Iolair A name in Irish
(Ir. Gob an Iolair [OSI], 'beak of the eagle') Kerry County, in Carn List, Cross-bedded sandstone Bedrock

Longitude: -10.12825, Latitude: 52.200166 , Easting: 54541, Northing: 107457 Prominence: 48.13m,  Isolation: 0.6km

Bedrock type: Cross-bedded sandstone, (Coumeenoole Sandstone Formation)

Since Beenbo is clearly a separate name (probably from Ir. Binn Bó, 'peak of the cow'), it seems likely that it is the true name of the summit, while Gob an Iolair applies originally to the sharp point just N of the summit.   Gob an Iolair is the 638th highest place in Ireland.

Great views of Glennahoo Valley
by Colin Murphy  2 Mar 2015
Beenbo was the final stop on a N-S trek starting at Lough Anscaul and taking in Knockmulanane, Cnoc na Bánóige, Banoge North N Top and Slievenagower, Having endured a fairly bleak five hours of high winds, rain and near zero visibility the descent from Beenbo offered virtually the only views of the day - the meandering Glennahoo River winding its way through a steep valley over three km long. Unfortunately it was still too misty to get any sort of decent shots - but it is a sight to behold. Beenbo summit itself is a heathery mound with no markings.
