This name is rather puzzling. Ir. cánóg means 'puffin', but there seems to be no other instances of its use as a generic in place-names.   Caunoge is the 565th highest place in Ireland. Caunoge is the most southerly summit and also the second most westerly in the Glenbeigh Horseshoe area.

Parking and gated track at V560 790 makes a straightforward hike.

A gate at V560 790 starB gives access to a track which provides a route onto the ridge from the west and the rest of the ascent is quite straightforward. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/448/comment/19883/
