There is a mapping problem regarding the names of several peaks in this area in that the Irish and English names are not matched up. The Irish version of Derrygarriff is given as Péicín, but this name clearly belongs to Peakeen Mountain. The correct Irish version is Doire Gharbh, which has been assigned (erroneously?) on the 1:25,000 map to this lower peak between Moll's Gap and Lough Barfinnihy.   Derrygarriff West Top is the 986th highest place in Ireland.

The perfect ending
by eamonoc  11 Apr 2017
After tough trek over Boughill, Cnoc Na gCapall, the Bascadh`s to Knocklomena and back on the road alongside the Owenreagh river to start point at Lough Barfinnihy. Climbed this hill just to cap off a great day out on the Dunkerrons. From car park there are two gates which are easily crossed, once over these headed uphill to the left following very obvious cattle tracks almost all the way up, once on level ground the actual top lies about 150mts to the east. Fantastic views from here in all directions. A great addition to round off the day, about 20mins up and down. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1075/comment/18879/
