The hill of Carranarah, which, immediately behind the town of Foxford, rises to a height of 600 feet above the lough - the winter level of the lough itself being 42 feet - commands a good view of Loughs Cullin and Conn, and of the mountains lying around its northern shores, and generally of the poor, wretchedly- cultivated, but romantic country lying around Foxford. (James Fraser, Hand Book for Travellers in Ireland, 1844) This peak is named Curanary on Bald’s Map of Mayo (1830). The name Carranarah is marked on the 25” to the mile map, but there is no indication of any monuments. Any information on the origin of the name would be welcome.   Carranarah is the 1406th highest place in Ireland.

Electric Dreams
by TommyV  30 May 2023
Followed the route mentioned by three5four0. The lane appears to be quite overgrown in parts now, but it's actually easy enough to push through. There is an extensive network of electric fencing around here which doesn't make the casual trespasser feel very welcome. I only went to the trig point as the views from here are the best. The summit proper is only a few hundred metres North from here but I didn't feel like crossing another fence. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1038/comment/23967/
