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 13th highest in Ireland. Lugnaquilla is the highest point in county Wicklow.

by paddyobpc  23 Jan 2017
Walk Date: 23 Jul 2015. I had walked Lugnaquilla previously in 2011 from near the Glenmalure Hostel returning into the Glenmalure valley via the zig zags and walking the road back up to the car. This time we were staying nearby for a few nights and my daughter Rachel and son Dillon(dillonkdy) joined me on the climb. We climbed the same route as previously but this time returned the same way due to it getting a bit close to evening. It was a nice evening for the walk with good enough visibility and views. This time we were on the mountains for about 4.5 hrs covering over 14 Km climbing a height of 800m. See Dillon’s (dillonkdy) full story of his County High Point Challenge at https://dillons32chpchallenge.github.io/progress/index.html We also found Kieron Gribbon's High Point Ireland website (www.highpointireland.com) to be a useful source of information for our 32 County High Points challenge. Definitely worth checking out if you're planning to do any of the High Point challenges. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/13/comment/18803/
