This peak on the Cork / Kerry border is probably named after one of several hollows on its slopes, but it is unclear which one. Like several other mountain names nearby, such the Priest’s Leap and Derrynasaggart, Ir. Com an tSagairt refers to a priest. This may be similarly explained by historical events or folklore from Penal times. More information on the name would be welcome.   Com an tSagairt is the 469th highest place in Ireland.

This was the last stop on a traverse of the ridge that finished with a fine pint of Guinness in the Gougane Barra Hotel.
I have found a mention of Gougane in the writings of Ann Plumptre who passed through the area in 1814, alas though she did not enjoy a stout here." no carriage, or even horse, could get nearer than within two miles, from whence the walk was over the sides of boggy mountains" , "my courage was not equal to the undertaking, and I abandoned the idea"

But what a wonderful pity she missed the view(and the stout!) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/395/comment/4744/
