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.

Great long range views in clear weather

Enjoyed a walk to this summit on a stunningly clear day. The route from the east is a little tedious but is rewarded in clear weather. The "popular" startpoint beside the telecoms antennae can be found on google maps as "Laharn Viewpoint".

I can understand the source of the name of this summit as just to the northwest of the summit proper, at the location of the decaying Iron Man, there's a gap of sorts between tops where wind funnels up from the valley to the south. This valley has some handsome steep-sided cliffs on its western flank.

At this spot Q79898 08395 B , where a cairn has been assembled, you can enjoy great views both North and South, and ponder how the enterprise that built the Iron Man is somehow able to leave it rotting on this hillside without any obligation to retire its asset. Thankfully more modern legislation on such constructions should require modern telecoms masts to be disassembled at the end of their useful lives, with the ground "made good". Well, we live in hope anyway.

On the day that was in it, I could comfortably make out all the major tops of the Reeks to the south, as far as the Paps to the East, and at times on my route I could see Kells Mountain to the south west. Of course, turning to face northwards I could also benefit from a glorious vista across North Kerry, easily picking out some of the Tralee landmarks such as the Blennerville Windmill and the Tralee Canal, beyond then to Ballyheighue and Kerry Head, as well as the outline of Loop Head in County Clare in the far distance.

Typical of North Kerry, no effort is made by the authorities to promote the Slieve Mish as any sort of tourist attraction, and this hill is less enticing than others, so you'll almost certainly have this place to yourself. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/339/comment/23217/
