Ir. clár can mean both a plain and a board. In the latter sense it can refer to a plank-bridge in some place-names. Thus Derryclare, from Ir. Doire Chláir, could either mean 'oak-wood of the plain' or 'oak-wood of the plank-bridge'. The name seems to have been transferred by the Ordnance Survey from the townland of Derryclare situated to the east to the mountain itself. In this respect the Ir. name Binn Doire Chláir makes much more sense as a mountain name.
Binn Doire Chláir is the 150th highest place in Ireland. Binn Doire Chláir is the second most easterly summit in the Twelve Bens area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/146/
