There is a townland named Baunreagh in the parish of Offerlane, located 4km to the W on the other side of The Cut. The name of this peak appears to consist of the same name with the addition of cúng, 'narrow'. The Irish form Bán Riabhach Conga is tentatively suggested at logainm.ie, but the basis for the final element conga is not clear. The River Barrow rises on the northern slopes of this hill and flows through Glenbarrow.   Baunreaghcong is the third highest mountain in the Slieve Bloom area and the 546th highest in Ireland. Baunreaghcong is the second most easterly summit in the Slieve Bloom area. Baunreaghcong is the second highest point in county Laois.

Start from the carpark at N 306 023 starA which is near the fine stone Monicknew Bridge. Walk up a forest track to the north east of this, which takes you along the south east side of the Delour River. On the day that I did this, it was a frothing brown torrent. Follow the mountain track until you reach a gap in the forest (at around N 322 030 starB) with open moorland to your left. The summit was flat, like the other 500m summits in the Slieve Blooms so I include a picture of the thick peat with miniature waterfall that was evident at the point where you start onto the moorland to reach the summit.
