This peak has no name on OS maps. Has been called Doomara, though Doonmara is properly the name of a headland to the NE. Judging from OS maps and Bald's map, the name Barradeegin seems properly to refer to the top of the valley of the Gweedaney River, which is a little to the west, but the name has been borrowed for this hill in the absence of a better alternative.   Barr an Dígín is the 1207th highest place in Ireland.

Coastal Delight.

With the cliff views in mind i decided to access this summit from Porturlin resulting in permission being sought from the farmer whose farmyard at F8834742759 A has gated access to the open hillside . If you do not wish to seek permission there are many spots allowing open access but the walk is thru heather with restricted views. The summit is flat and boggy with no great features but the cliff walk is fantastic. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1022/comment/18624/
