There is a hillfort on summit named Rathcoran and a second one to NW. The entry in PNCW for Rathcoran refers to an article on The Excavation of a Burial Cairn on Baltinglass Hill in PRIA xlvi (1941), p. 221. This makes it clear that Baltinglass Hill is the English name of this height. Has been called Coolanarrig.   Baltinglass Hill is the 990th highest summit in Ireland.

Dec_Alcock on Baltinglass Hill, 2010

The best access point for Baltinglass hill is along the laneway to the right of the graveyard. This has always been used for public access for the hill and permission is not necessary. This leads onto a grassy field below the cross which is easily traversed in a few minutes. A gate leads into a more rugged gorse covered field. There used to be a pathway, or sheep track, here which led directly up to the cross however this has become badly overgrown with gorse and is not recommended, by walking to the left around this area there is a much easier route. To reach the summit walk to the right along the ridge. From this point the walk is much easier as what were previously fields of heather, gorse and a fern has been reclaimed as grassland for sheep. While this makes walking less difficult unfortunately it has reduced the wilderness aspect of the hillside.
The hill fort and passage graves are located on the summit or “pinnacle” as it is known locally and are extimated to be approximately 5000 years old. They can be reached in 30 to 40 minutes. The site was first excavated in 1941and the surrounding wall is modern with the original having been robbed for wall building. The site contains remains of 3 small passage-tombs built at different times and partly-overlying each other, plus two single-chambered tombs. The view from the top is spectacular with Keadeen. Lugnaquilla and Mount Leinster among the peaks visible. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/864/comment/4498/
