It is not certain whether Bolaght represents Both Leachta, 'hut of the monument' [TNCT] or Buaileacht, 'herd of cows, dairying place' [JOD]. In the absence of any archaeological evidence, the latter seems more likely.   Bolaght Mountain is the 1057th highest place in Ireland.

Bolaght & Bin Mountains are extensively forested (by the NI Forestry Commission) and contain numerous small and pretty loughs. The views from the top on a clear day are very impressive, reaching from Cuilcagh Mtn in south Fermanagh up to Erigal in north Donegal and right across the Sperrin chain.
The new wind farm has added improved trails so making this good training ground for trail running. The Ulster Way passes along the top of Bolaght, thus giving splendid views of the scenic Lough Lee and the aforementioned panorama.
Parking is available along Lough Bradan road, near the waterworks.
Extensive wildlife is often seen including badgers, deer, foxes, hares, and birdlife including ravens, hen harriers, herons, grouse and smaller birds of prey.
I run in this area regularly, often for hours at a time and rarely see another person.
This is more of a tough walk than a typical hill walk but I think of it as a hidden gem. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/904/comment/4009/
