From the vicinity of Cloghane church there is a strange optical illusion whereby this peak seems higher than the summit, though it is actually over 100m lower.   Brandon Peak is the 25th highest place in Ireland.

Interesting ridge to the east
by Onzy  28 Apr 2015
On a recent clear day, I got a great view of the ridge that descends in an easterly (with a touch of north) direction into Loch Croichte. This must be a spectacular ascent route and looks feasible from the map, though maybe not right along the crest. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/24/comment/17956/
