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 561st highest place in Ireland. Caunoge is the most southerly summit and also the second most westerly in the Glenbeigh Horseshoe area.

Simple approach from the east.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  6 Aug 2014
One approach is via a farmyard at V607787 A, where the farmer has previously allowed access up a track. The track to the NW continues to within 300m of the summit, which is fairly nondescript, a grassy area with the high point marked by a pile of stones.
