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 544th highest in Ireland. Baunreaghcong is the second most easterly summit in the Slieve Bloom area. Baunreaghcong is the second highest point in county Laois.

Snow and frost combine to paint the landscape
by Colin Murphy  17 Jan 2022
Approached this hill from Capard, and was fortunate to do it in snow and frost, as it rendered the normally so-so landscape very pretty indeed. Just as well really, as the hill has little else to recommend it. Have now bagged everything the Slieve Blooms has to offer...Arderins, Carns and Binions, and I'm blooming done with them!
