An Seabhac reports hearing from a shanachee that the correct name was Cathair Bhláthnaide, 'Bláthnaid's stone fort'. Bláthnaid was the daughter of the king of the Isle of Man. Cú Chulainn and Cú Roí fell out over who would have her hand. See Caherconree. Previously Ballyarkane Oughter in MV.   Caherbla is the 324th highest place in Ireland.

Clear track underfoot from col with Caherconree fort
by Bunsen7  21 Apr 2022
This top appears to be well frequented using the tourist track to Caherconree fort from the north west and turning south at the ridge line. A clear track from col to summit has developed from hiker footfall. Very good long distance views in clear weather. Looking south, I could see from Caherbarnagh (south east) to Knocknadobar (south west). All the main features of the Reeks were discernible to the South. Looking west, Brandon can be identified. Definitely worth a short visit. Being that bit lower, it is less likely to be mist covered than the higher summits of the Slieve Mish(t). Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/302/comment/23486/
