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.   Barr an Ghéaráin is the 25th highest place in Ireland.

Garran Ceoil
by liz50  23 Jul 2021
Iain T and Onzy both mention the impressive east ridge of Brandon Peak which leads directly to the summit from the shore of Lough Croite, the largest of the Paternoster lakes. Known locally as Garran Ceoil, the recent fine weather was the ideal opportunity to tackle the route. We were rewarded with some fine scrambling and magnificent views.
