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 322nd highest place in Ireland.

A walk over boggy ground with a steep ascent to finish
Short Summary created by jackill,  3 Aug 2012
Start from a small lay-by at Q 716 052 A , room for 2 cars. Walk up the steep ground at the back of the lay-by heading for Caherbla.At about the 500-meter mark there is a long ridge of conglomerate rocks, which you can skirt around to the south to avoid or pick your way carefully through one of the gaps. Be careful though the gaps are slippery and full of loose stones. The summit is the highest point on a long, jagged, narrow line of rock, which rises about 5 meters above the level of the rest of the terrain.
