The name Glanaprehane probably refers to the steep glen N of Caherbarnagh rather than this peak.   Caherbarnagh NW Top is the 163rd highest place in Ireland. Caherbarnagh NW Top is the second most northerly summit in the Derrynasaggart area.

In need of some rocks
by thomas_g  1 Apr 2012
Approached Caherbarnagh NW from Knocknagowan via Caherbarnagh, I had planned to head on to Knocknabro and back up the road in Clydagh valley, but the going is so tough over the tussocky boggy ground from Clydagh I decided to head back the way I came.
The views to the North are lovely and the valley between Caherbarnagh NW and Caherbarnagh looks like a great climb, I'm sure it's horribly slippery though.
Reaching the summit of Caherbarnagh NW, I came across a tiny cairn which needs some urgent help, so if you've got some room in your backpack for a few rocks, you know what to do. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/157/comment/6745/
