The first element may alternatively be Ir. tom, 'bush' or 'knoll'. Ir. aonach means 'a fair or assembly'. It is therefore curious that the mountain NW of Tomaneena is called Fair Mountain in English. Its Irish name is An Chaor. The valley below Fair Mountain is named Glenceera according to Price [PNCW]. Tomaneena is also known as Turlough Hill.   Tomaneena is the 137th highest place in Ireland.

Picture: Trig
Was it worth it
by ewen  18 Dec 2016
I actually walked past Tomaneena today on the way to Camaderry up the access road from the Wicklow gap. I was in a total dwam so realised I'd have to do it on the way back which ruled out dropping to St Kevin's way.
A track leads up to it and the top is a few peat hags, bog, a rusty shack and a trig that doesn't seem to be the highest point. I went to the trig, went to the shack and then headed back down to the car. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/136/comment/18727/

More power to you
by Bunsen7  27 Mar 2018
The below link leads you to a fascinating presentation from the ESB on how power is generated at Turlough Hill. It includes a number of spectacular arerial photographs, historical photographs from the construction and detailed explanation of the inner workings of the pumping station.

Amazing to think what has been done within the rock of this mountain, whether we agree with the aesthetics of it or not. The single shaft is nearly 600m long and is used for both pumping and releasing the water from/to Lough Nahanagan in the corrie below.

Good scramble up from the carpark at the power station. Can't see the reservoir till near the top.
If you've managed to get up Camaderry, you might as well traverse over to here to see the view of
West Wicklow. Ugly top but I suppose we need somewhere for the late late show tea break power.

Where in God's name is Tomaneena, you might ask. Look for it under a reservoir! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/136/comment/501/

A first trip up this side of Glendalough for my wife. We went up Camaderry from the top carpark in Glendalough and along the ridge and past Turlough Hill. After negotiating the peat hags and bog we stopped for a well earned break at Lough Firrib before we continued around onto Lugduff and back down into the valley. The hail showers were following us but we had time to take in the splendid views from this beautiful isolated spot. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/136/comment/3039/

Much ado about nothing!
by march-fixer  19 Mar 2012
This mountain top has been overshadowed by its manually constructed neighbour. Other than the views south, there is little to recommend it. It is intriguing to know why somwone would want to build a 'brick s—t house' all the way up here? - or maybe it is a old communications shack!
