The name makes no sense as applied to a summit. However, nearby is the Glennamong River, S.E. of the summit, flowing into L. Feeagh, so Glennamong is clearly the valley through which the river flows. OSNB mentions it only as a townland name, not that of a peak, so the error may have arisen at the stage of printing the 6 map. Walks: for a route taking in Bengorm, Corranabinnia and Glennamong, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 72-73.   Glennamong is the 242nd highest place in Ireland.

Remote and stunning
by Colin Murphy  29 May 2012
These mountains are among the most remote in Ireland and Glennamong is a long haul no matter which approach you choose to take. The shortest and possibly easiest route is probably from the east along the Bangor Trail, parking at 974 054 C, taking the track on the west of the road that joins with the Western Way, which eventually forks into the Bangor Trail. Follow this NW for about 6km to point 935 074 D then SW up the gently rising slope for a further 3km. From the summit (marked by a triangular stone and not the cairn nearby) a vast plain extends to the west and north affording amazing views all the way to the western tip of Achill Island. The views to the south and east are equally impressive. It's a long haul, but on a fine day, well worth the effort. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/232/comment/6832/
