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.

Hi everyone,

Im hoping to climb the Lug in the couple of weeks, been a year since Ive done it last. Last time i started at the Army centre in Glean O Mail, and walked over Camarahill and on up to the Trig point, a more long gradual route. Anyone any suggestions for a different route, possibly from the Glenmalure side?
Anyone with tracks marked on maps in jpeg or gpx format, appreciate anything you could send on!

Thanks Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/13/comment/3610/

Well seen as yesterday was fabulous weather we decided to climb Lug. We started from Donard and up onto table and then across onto Lug. The weather was amazing, i only put on my jacket just after table mountain, The bog areas were reasonably dry which helped! The mountain was quite crowed given the day that was in it but far better views can be seen from this side of Lug rather than Camaran Hill.. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/13/comment/3649/

three of our group went up Lug on Sat 2 may 09 via the stoney road and camenabologue then up over cannow mountain and on to lug. The weather was great, left the car in baravore at 7.45, the cloud had lifted by the time we got to table track. The only hardship we had was everywhere was so wet. Had a chat with a group of lads on lug who were in training for the four peaks challange good luck to them. It was very quite up around for such a good day only met a couple of groups. we left Lug and headed down via Cloghernagh and arts lough with the long forest walk to finish at the concrete Bridge where we had a second car parked. Total trip was 19.6km and we were in the Glenmalure lodge for lunch by one and the oncoming rain. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/13/comment/3745/

Sunday morning on Lug
by barryredmond  26 Oct 2010
Walked to the summit with the great John O'Brien from Blessington (and Naas) last Sunday morning the 17th. Weather was very good with no wind and excellent visibility.
Set off from Fentons at 8am and took the regular route up Camerahill, meeting a fair sprinkling of people on the way.
Took an alternative route back down skirting the North prison area, passing the remains of the unfortunate aircraft and the famous quadbike !!
evidence of natural erosion in this area with a lot of soil having been washed down off the Northern flank down to where the aircraft wreckage is.
Skirted back up onto the Camerahill route to avoid the range
Overall a great day Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/13/comment/6152/

Soggy day on the Lug
by delbhoy284  25 Jun 2015
On Holiday for week taking the Mammy (89) to visit relatives, had day off from visiting on Wednesday, 17th June, as is the case weather was abysmal, heavy rain & clag from Falls Brook to summit. Conditions which I am well used to at home in Scotland. No Views only sound of firing on the military range. But all was not lost, met the warden from Glenmalure Youth Hostel so had a good blether & took up his invitation to drop in on way down for a cuppa. Roaring fire & cup of tea, perfect end to the day. Then drive back to sunny Dun laoghaire. Still gives me the excuse to return & visit again from another direction. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/13/comment/18162/
