Luggala Mountain Log an Lá A name in Irish

Longitude: -6.283449, Latitude: 53.105111 , Easting: 315013, Northing: 207403 Prominence: 110m,  Isolation: 2.1km
ITM: 714938 707437,   GPS IDs, 6 char: Lugala, 10 char: Luggala
Bedrock type: Granite with microcline phenocrysts, (Type 2p microcline porphyritic)

Also known as Fancy, from Ir. Fuinnse [PNCW], 'ash-tree', and Cloghoge. Price's interpretation of this name as Log an Lágh, 'hollow of the hill', is doubtful. There is no evidence in dictionaries for the existence of a word lágh with this meaning. The second element does not appear to be lá, 'day', either.   Luggala is the 299th highest place in Ireland.

Winter Sunday at Luggula and Knocknacloghoge
by nkenealy  16 Dec 2012
I uploaded this walk as a track here http://mountainviews.ie/track/2046/

Take the R115 out of Rathfarnham ( past hellfire club, Kilakee, masseys wood) and go south all the way to the Sally Gap. At the Sally Gap crossroads, Take a soft left along the R759 east (towards Kilmacanoge - Roundwood road).
You will see Luggula cliffs to the right and Lough Tay (Guinness Lake) down below. Early morning start (8:40) so the winter sun was just coming up. I knew the rain was on its way from the southwest but the weather was clear for the whole walk. Parked about 100 metres North of the entrance to the Guinness Estate 53.105° N 6.28344° W. Long walk down the Guinnness Avenue down to the wooden bridge across the Cloghoge River. Take a right turn here and go over the stile and follow the path up Luggula. This is the hardest part of the walk for the lungs going up about 400 metres. There's no real obvious summit at the top but you can see Djouce to the East and Mullaghcleevaun to the West. To head over to Knockcloghoge, there's a parh down at about 190 degrees (almost south). It's directly towards the summit of Knockcloghoge. The hardest part here is finding a place to cross Cloghoge Brook. I had to deviate a little to the right to come to a place where the brook divides in two with an island in the middle. I took a zig zag path up to the ridge but didn't go right to the summit and instead took a path which was leading back down towards the road which goes between Lough Tay and Lough Dan. I could have crossed the river down near Lough Dan and climbed up the other side to reach the Wicklow Way and take it North towards the R759. Instead I opted for the paved road back up to the wooden bridge where I originally took off for Luggula. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/286/comment/14894/
