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 Wicklow area and the 12th highest in Ireland. Lugnaquilla is the highest point in county Wicklow.

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/

Today, Sunday 13th Sept five of us took the well written about route up the Fraughan Rock Glen. What we did not expect was the wonderful view awaiting us. We were there before 12 mid-day. I sat for over 30mins and was reluctant to leave. Photos taken on the way up and from the summit are superb. I attach one of the vista out toward the Comeraghs (according to the diagram on the top), I unfortunately couldn't identify all the mountains we could see.

Lost on Lug
by micko  28 Jul 2010
Climbed Lug recently for the second time but with a 20year plus gap. Set out from Barivore and headed on a quick route over the waterfall and up. We met up with a couple on route and progressed all together with my 2 sons, 11 and 8 and our 2 dogs to the summit in good time. We had the to get back to the car. The visability was down to 8 - 10m and getting back proved impossible. We ended up summiting twice and started again. We stopped close to the North Prison for a break and got a lucky break when the clouds broke for 2 mins. Recognised the Glen of Imail and Carmahill and decided getting off the mountain was more important than finding the route back over the mountain. We eventually got back to our car at 9pm.. Im doing a course next month on Mountain navigation. Wont allow that happen again.. I cant believe I allowed that happen so if your planning on doing a hillwalk outside a Club, take some advice.. do a navigation course because common sense down here is not relevant up there, it means very little.

First ascent up Lugnaquilla
by khalligan  4 Aug 2010
I went for my first successful hike up Lugnaquilla on Monday. We ascended up the Glenmalure side via Baravore -> Benleagh -> Fraughan Glen. We then headed left and ascended via the steeper climb T034936 starA and continued along to the where the incline leveled out at T037938 starB. From here we headed onto the summit. Thankfully the cloud was starting to subside on the summit, and we just made it to the summit monument in time.

Being our first ascent we descended along the same route back down. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/13/comment/5984/
