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 1056th highest summit in Ireland.

There is a good carpark & picnic area for the Sloughan Glen Waterfall walk, which can also be used for access to Bolaght Mountain, at 277742 E. From here walk a short distance towards Willmount Glen, taking the first track on your left, follow this track up hill past a lot of rowan trees loaded with berries to a track junction at 255747 F. From the junction turn right & cross over a bridge, continue straight on (pasted the main track turning left) and follow the Ulster Way (over or around the gate across the track) to Lough Lee.

Where the Ulster Way leaves the main track at Lough Lee walk up hill to the summit of Bolaght Mountain, the views must be extensive, however on our visit other hills were already in cloud and a light drizzle had started. Descent is by the way of ascent, if you have the time, the waterfall trail is worth a visit, the trail starts in the carpark. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/904/comment/4159/
