Together with its neighbour Beann and their satellites, it forms a horseshoe ridge that confines a narrow glen known as the Pocket.   Mullaghanattin is the third highest mountain in the Dunkerron Mountains area and the 60th highest in Ireland.

Ireland's last Wimbledon Winner
by Conor74  2 Feb 2011
Was Harold Segerson Mahony, whose family owned Dromore Castle in Templenoe, the area between here and Kenmare - the castle itself is in the woods by the sea, some miles south west of Mullaghanattin. He spent most of his youth in this area, and went on to win Wimbledon in 1896. He is widely accredited as being Ireland's last Wimbledon winner, though research has shown that he was actually born in Scotland and may be their only winner - at least until Mr Murray answers his fans prayers. He was romantically linked with the female tennis star of the time and 5 time Wimbledon winner Charlotte 'Lottie' Dodd. He won an Olympic silver medal for the same sport in 1900.

So apart from growing up in the shadow of the Dunkerrons, what's his link to this mountain? Well in 1905 his body was found at the side of the road in Ballaghbeama, the mountain pass to the east of Mullaghanattin. He had been out cycling and struck by a horse and cart, and by local accounts the owner was unjustly tried for murder and hung.

In a strange footnote, incredibly a previous Irish Wimbledon finalist, Vere St Leger Goold, who lost the 1879 decider, was the only major finalist convicted of murder, he killed a creditor in Monaco. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/58/comment/6231/
