This is one of the most common names for a pass in Ireland. The name is actually marked on lower peaks to the E, and it seems likely that the gap in question is even further to the E.   Barnanageehy is the 389th highest place in Ireland. Barnanageehy is the most easterly summit and also the second most northerly in the Slieve Mish area.

Just over 200m to the NW lies the decaying metalwork of a microwave reflector, unfortunately obscuring the otherwise great view towards Fenit. According to Sean O Suilleabhain [Irish Walk Guides South West 1978] the was used to bounce microwave signals from Tralee to LImerick and was locally called the Iron Man. Sean recounts the safety issues encountered by some of the staff: "After the experience of having some men lose their way in fog (they had ascended the north side and descended the south side unintentionally), all staff members now leaving Tralee are provided with a compass and a list of compass bearings between the poles which were erected along the route,..." There's only a few of the poles left and it is interesting to clarify how they got there. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/339/comment/2084/
