Presumably the name is transferred from some nearby hollow to the mountain itself. Price has a useful note to this effect, but is unable to determine the hollow in question. There are three valleys in the vicinity: Fraughan Rock Glen to the north-east, the South Prison to the south-east and the North Prison to the north-west. The first two are both forested nowadays. The summit is marked as Percy's Table, named after a local landowner of the 18th century. Cf. Dawson's Table on Galtymore. P.W. Joyce gave the original form as Log na Coilleach, 'hollow of the (grouse) cocks'. However this seems doubtful. It does not show the urú which would be expected. Nor is the name connected with the deity Lug.   Lugnaquilla is the highest mountain in the Dublin/Wicklow area and the 12th highest in Ireland. Lugnaquilla is the highest point in county Wicklow.

Was up Log na Coille via the zig-zag track and Cloghernagh on Saturday last. Perhaps the best conditions I've ever seen it in. Snow on the Log from about halfway along the brow from Cloghernagh, clear skies, fabulous sunshine, and not a breath of wind. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/13/comment/3474/

Picture: Summit of Lugnacoille, Winter Solstice 2009
queensgael on Lugnaquilla, 2010
by queensgael  8 Jan 2010
Went up Lugnacoille on Monday morning, December 21st, the morning of the Winter Solstice. We started at 5.30am, in the darkness, with the intention of reaching the summit for the dawn. The weather was pretty good, a tiny bit foggy, and with snow on the ground (ankle deep for the most part, but up to knee-depth in some areas with the drifts).
The hike up was pretty good, and we reached the summit in about 2 hours, with about 40 mins before the dawn (we were far too fast!). It was very cold waiting around for the sun, but when it came, it was fantastic. There was some cloud cover, but it blew away to reveal the morning sun.
The descent was fine, took about 1.5 hours. Some ice along the way, but it was easy to pick out.
Overall, a great morning out! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/13/comment/4350/

Glenmalure - Lug via Clohernagh
by srr45  3 May 2011
I did Lugnaquilla about three weeks ago from Glenmalure. I used this trip as part of training for the Maamturks Challenge. It was a great day with little or no cloud. Starting at 079 928 A on the no.56 map, I headed up the switch backs and then up to the summit of Clohernagh in 59mins. Then up to Lugnaquilla in another 26mins. I followed the same route back. to 079 928 A. Round trip in a fast walking pace was 2hr29mins. It is a good training walk as it takes in about 800-850meters of ascent and descent. The summit was clear for a 360 view on the day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/13/comment/6336/

First walk 2003 and what better than the Lug in snow! Approached from the Camarahill spur in the Glen of Imaal. Mountains looking magnificent, snow covered on a beautiful clear day. Hillwalkers on the Camarahill spur head for the summit. Return by this route about 4.5 hrs. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/13/comment/277/
