The sharp ridge which climbs to Mullaghnarakill between Coomaglaslaw and Coomnacronia provides one of the most challenging walks in the Glenbeigh Horseshoe area. The lower part of this ridge is known locally as Drom an Bháid or Bottom of the Boat, from its resemblance to an upturned keel. The second element of Mullaghnarakill appears to be a modern Irish form of a rare Old Irish word airchel, and can be compared with Welsh argel, ‘secluded spot, hiding place, sanctuary’. Errigal in Donegal is probably an instance of the same word, but the -g- there indicates Brittonic-type lenition, whereas Mullaghnarakill seems to reflect a more typically Goidelic development. It is interesting to note that the Brittonic form is found in a northern name while the Goidelic form occurs in a southern one. Probably related to Mullaghnarakill are the townland names Coolnaharragill Lower/Upper (Cúil na hEargaile), even though these show a -g-. These two townlands are located NE of Mullaghnarakill at the foot of the mountains near Mountain Stage. The secluded spot referred to in these names seems to be the valley of the River Behy, or some part of it. It should be noted that this interpretation is supported as the correct one by the absence of any early church site (aireagal (m.) < Lat. oraculum) and the indications that the word in question is not masculine but feminine.   Mullaghnarakill is the 170th highest place in Ireland.

At the summit you are not aware of the dramatic cliffs North and East. All there is to see is this low outcrop with a mini cairn on it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/164/comment/1906/
