This peak is unnamed on OS maps. It lies on the boundary of the townlands of Derrynafulla and Coomarkane. Any information on the correct name of this hill would be welcome. Having been unable to defend Dunboy Castle against the English cannons, it was from Derrynafulla (Ir. Doire na Fola, 'oak-grove of the blood') that Donal Cam O'Sullivan Beare regrouped his forces and followers on December 31st 1602 before their arduous and perilous march northwards to meet the O'Rourkes in Leitrim.   Derrynafulla SW is the 896th highest summit in Ireland.

New Comment Attempt from Derryconnery
by thomas_g  Mon 15 Dec
I attempted to find a route up through the trees from Derryconnery, following the old Beara Way past where it turned to the south, I took the next right turn into a boggy valley by a stream. I attempted and failed to find a reasonable route through the trees on to Derrynafulla.
Next time, I'll either ignore this turning and walk to the end of the valley and climb onto the ridge where the Beara way now runs or approach from the Coomarkane valley to the north.
Moral of the story, don't go that way. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/872/comment/17759/

In this panorama the peaks in the distance are Sugarloaf Mountain (right) and Gowlbeg Mountain (centre). The hill in question is seen directly in front of Sugarloaf and Shrone Hill is to the left. Derrynafulla is the name of a townland at the foot of these last two peaks. Having been unable to defend Dunboy Castle against the English cannons, it was here that Donal Cam O'Sullivan Bere regrouped his forces and followers on December 31st 1602 before their arduous and perilous march northwards to meet the O'Rourkes in Leitrim.
