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 388th highest place in Ireland. Barnanageehy is the most easterly summit and also the second most northerly in the Slieve Mish area.

A long easy ascent from the roadside
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, jackill  29 May 2014
Start at Quarry Hill car park Q83642 07816 A ,room for many cars and walk uphill and west on a track initially. It should be noted that half way up this track you encounter a locked gate with a big yellow 'Restricted Access' sign. The track continues past various aerials and power supply buildings and ends at open hillside. If you have any concerns regarding using this track, there is pretty open access to the hillside just past the start of the track. After that you will have a little over an hour's walk to the summit, heading directly west for 3km until the last 500m when you veer slightly NW. The climb is fairly gentle (the starting point is already at 300m), crossing a number of rolling hills, none of which are much of a challenge. Going underfoot is mostly firm, a mixture of long grass and some heather. The unremarkable summit is marked by a pile of rocks. 2.5 hours to top and back.
