This peak itself has no name on the Discovery map. However, a spot slightly to the west is named Tawnagradia on the OS 6 inch map. Breandán S. Mac Aodha suggests Tamhnach na gCreathaidí, 'green field of the small seed potatoes' as a possible interpretation (MNIMA, 147). If correct, this would be a graphic illustration of the desperate farming conditions here in the past, given the altitude, remote location and rugged terrain. Previously Derreennawinshin in MV.   Mweelrea SE Spur is the 583rd highest place in Ireland. Mweelrea SE Spur is the second most southerly summit in the Mweelrea Mountains area.

Fine hill with well defined summit.
by Colin Murphy  30 May 2016
Often the first or last stop on the Mweelrea-Lugmore circular route, this is a fine summit in itself and is just 5m short of Arderin status. Approaching from Mweelrea it is just 70m ascent from the col to a grass/boulder summit. Coming down initially is very steep, and as ground levels out the terrain becomes rough - long grass, spongy, uneven, young forestry, barbed wire fencing - before you eventually find the long track that emerges into Delphi Adventure Centre lodge and the road beyond. From summit to road is a good 5km. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/474/comment/18550/
