Erroneously marked as ‘Glengower’ on the Discovery series map. On the summit of this mountain you will find thrift (or sea-pink) in bloom during the late spring, despite the fact that it is far inland.   Binn Gabhar is the 173rd highest place in Ireland.

If you've climbed Benlettery you might as well do this one too! Interested in any ideas of what the "safe" way from Bengower to Benbreen is. Pic shows Benbreen to the middle/left, Bengower to the extreme right, taken from the track from Benlettery (15.02.2003) Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/167/comment/325/
