Overlooks Ballaghisheen (Ir. Bealach Oisín, 'pass of Oisín' from the north. A ridge to the north connects with Meenteog on the Glenbeigh Horseshoe. There are several names mentioned by Ó Cíobháin with the element collach, lit. 'a boar', but referring to boulders. This may be the origin of Colly, but there are other possibilities.   Colly is the 145th highest place in Ireland.

Here's the picture to go with Mr Walker's comments. The farm track can clearly be seen. I can confirm that the insects were the most vicious yet encountered. And the farmer's dogs' bark is much worse than their bite. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/140/comment/2830/
