It seems that Conigar is the name applied to the south-western peak (566m) which overlooks Borlin, whilst Maolach, meaning 'bald hill', is the north-eastern peak overlooking Gougane Barra.   An Coinigéar is the 369th highest place in Ireland.

Parked at W05344 63922 F (one car - just). Walked back to the gate and straight up the hill for the peak. It's less than 1.5 hours up and back. Views from the top ok, but the nicest view is over the Borlin valley on the way back down. Pretty boggy at the start of the walk in June. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/333/comment/15022/
