Tim Robinson suggests that Altnagaighera is from Ir. Ailt na gCaorach, ‘ravine of the sheep’, which is possible if the -gh- in the anglicised form is silent. This is one of a number of peaks in this part of Connemara which have totally different Irish and English names, although both come from Irish, cf. Garraun / Maolchnoc. Previously Garraun SW Top in MV.
Altnagaighera is the 424th highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1444/
