Luggala Mountain Log an Lá A name in Irish
also Fancy an extra name in English
(Ir. Log an Lá [], 'hollow of the [obscure element]') Wicklow County, in Arderin List, Granite with microcline phenocrysts Bedrock

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 302nd highest place in Ireland.

CaptainVertigo on Luggala, 2005
by CaptainVertigo  6 Apr 2005
Worried about GLOBAL WARMING? Scary isn’t it? Violent storms. Melting ice caps. Killer sharks swimming up your toilet to nibble your re-marriage prospects. Ouch!! Such were the thoughts that occupied the fragile mind of Captain Vertigo last Saturday night during the long hours of darkness prior to the attack on Luggala. ( At this point I wish to state clearly that the Captain does not recognise the expression “Fancy Mountain”. There is something effete, jejune, self-indulgent and decadent about this casual designation. There’s something …French about it. Too close to “Fancy Woman”. “Well fanceeee that!” How apt the rubric “Luggala”. Like an Irish cop in New York: Lugs O’Law. The deformed ears of a tight head prop come to mind. How manly and vigorous !) In any event, the NAVAN HILLWALKERS eschewed a frontal advance on Luggala. That’d ‘ve been too easy! Nope! General Hudson had issued orders from his sick bed that we advance from the rear . Thus it was, ably led by the General’s batman, Sergeant-Major Michael Spillane, that we crept up the long and winding staircase to the top of the Djouce, before moving on to the summit of War Hill from where we did a “recci”. There the Captain spotted a little heap of malodorous black balls and concluded sheepishly that they were the manifestation of an unseen enema. Clearly, caution was called for. But the traverse from War Hill to the northern slopes of Luggala took place in gorgeous sunshine. Oh blessed Global Warming! The Mother of all Fine Days! May your Ozone Layer be depleted by the methane gases of a thousand baked bean eating Boy Scouts! Shine on ! Shine your ultra violet light on the bracken hairy hills of Wicklow. Rid the land of that evil stubble! Continue to give us Summer days in early April!! We grazed contently on double rations by a babbling brook . Sergeant-Major Spillane, encouraged by the sunshine, marched us, single file, in double quick time, up Luggala, till we reached the rim. There we once again stood silently and pondered the work of the Unseen Hand . The Captain, not for the first time enraptured, had to be restrained from diving into the dark waters below. “Not on my watch lad!” muttered the Sergeant Major. The tranquil moment shattered, the platoon moved on. During the descent the Captain implored a passing nurse (sadly not attired in full white Nightengale regalia) to perform an emergency hip replacement for him. She demurred. The sight of the Captain dragging his lifeless limbs up the fierce hill to the car park cheered the hearts of the Company. Great praise was heaped on Gen.Hudson for having the foresight to leave the best wine till last –a true walking challenge in the sweltering heat! Trackback:
