If you like your ridges narrow and steep then you you'll like the 1300m trip from Finnararagh/ An Corrán to this place. As with so much of this area there are large boulders strewn around often perching at odd angles from when the ice left. The land and the top is steep on both sides. At times the ridge seems to follow the top of an upward fold in the land, which you can see in the picture.
Navigation from Finnararagh could be tricky in poor visibility. The land has numerous obstacles and there is another ridge stretching out from Finnararagh going NE though more northerly. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/326/comment/6314/
