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.

Here's a close up of the Iron Man monstrosity.

The metal has obviously rotted but I'd say the fact that it was constructed in a "windy gap" with wind funnelling up the valley from the South had something to do with it falling northwards! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/339/comment/23218/
