The name Glanaprehane probably refers to the steep glen N of Caherbarnagh rather than this peak.   Caherbarnagh NW Top is the 162nd highest place in Ireland. Caherbarnagh NW Top is the second most northerly summit in the Paps/Derrynasaggart area.

The Derrynasaggart mountains would not win any awards for their looks.
At first glance a vast, sodden expanse of bog carpeted in rough Ling and Tussock Sedge
that have made many a better man than me reach for his Lucozade.
Look again though and the rich geological history of the area comes to light.
The sharp edge of Devonian Old Red Sandstone of the Derrynasaggarts wedged against the
older Namurian rocks to the north divided by the Killarney/Mallow faultline.
The rich glacial deposits piled against the northern slopes recall times when these
hills carried their own receding Ice-cap 130,000 years ago and somewhat obscure the impressive
fault scap which is visible in a only few places such as Lough Gortavehy.
To the west the sensual Paps contrast with the violent, twisted slopes of Crohane and Stoompa rising above the tranquil Lough Guitane
betraying the outpourings of lava and volcanic deposits in the late Devonian era that formed them.
But enough of the geology lesson, what of the views? what of the views!
On a clear day in early March, the snow capped Kerry Highlands....... magnificent!
