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 992nd highest place in Ireland. Derrygarriff West Top is the most westerly summit in the Mangerton area.

Having noticed Conor74's comment on it being boggy on the W side I was prepared for the worst, however given our dry spell the last month it was bone dry. Get here while it lasts! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1075/comment/19505/
