Located on southern boundary of Glennahoo townland. The location of this feature looks odd on the Discovery map but on the 1/2 inch map it is the lower peak which directly overlooks Maghanaboe and An Seabhac's description confirms this: binn árd cnuic ar an dteorainn theas [Glennahoo townland]. Anglicised name appears on ½ inch map.   Binn an Tuair is the 312th highest place in Ireland.

Do not miss the view
by Bunsen7  28 Dec 2016
Having descended from Beenoskee via Coumbane, I was tempted to make my way back to my start point in the Anascaul valley. But benefitting from the fantastic weather on Stephen's Day 2016, I decided to head westward to Beenatoor. The ascent from the east is nothing to write home about, but then it hits you, Glenahoo.

Not to be missed. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/291/comment/18741/
