Typos or variations
A welcome comment came in recently from Loz about typos on the site, pointing out that the Wicklow peak named Clohernagh is incorrectly spelt "Cloghernagh" on the site. Thanks Laurence for spotting this. The site will be updated in due course. If anybody notices any other errors, please let MV know through this space.

On a related subject, it would also be interesting to know about OS typos, of which there are a few which are relevant to hill-walkers. I am aware of the following: Teeromoyle Mountain (Kerry) spelt "Teermoyle"; Coomcathcun (Kerry) marked "Coomeathcun"; Maumought (Galway)spelt "Maumonght"; Bengower (Galway) marked "Glengower"! Croaghonagh (Donegal) marked "Barnesmore"!

My comments about Maumought is supposition on the basis that "Maumonght" is unpronouncable and "Maumought" is the most likely solution. It would be nice if someone with local knowledge could confirm or deny this. I have asked around the Irish place-name forum without success.

I also suspect that Knockpasheemore (12 Bens, Galway) may be an error, perhaps for Knockasheemore or Knocknasheemore, and that Carnaween (Bluestacks, Donegal) may be an error for Carnaneen as Seoirse Ó Dochartaigh has Carn an Éin as the Irsh for this. Again, any local or linguistic knowledge welcomed and if you spot map other typos, please let us know. Thanks, Paul
