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.

Western outlier of Caherbarnagh
Short Summary created by simon3,  31 Jan 2011
The summit overlooks great areas of Cork farmland and some of Kerry. There is a good view of the gracious Paps to the SW. It can be reached from the Duhallow Way to the north and east, with particular starting points such as W196893 A or W177850 B. Or make it part of a ridge walk from Caherbarnagh from which it is separated by around 650m and a NE facing corrie.
Going is good on the summit with short grass or heather though some of the lower slopes are harder. The exact top is somewhat vague. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/157/comment/4917/
