Notes on name: 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.

Picture: The summit from the NE in front of the 12 Bens.
Probably most will come to the this summit before or after going to Mweelrea to which it is joined by a broad col extending NE. It has good views of the 12 Bens, the Maamturks etc and in particular of the nearly sheer east side of Mweelrea.
One way to reach this summit is from the vicinity of the Delphi Mountain Resort. There is parking at the centre (it's polite to buy a drink if you are using it) or beside the road including at a nearby bridge.
The quickest way is along a forest track starting at around A (L84080 64678). Walk east from there following the west side of the trees until you can reach the col between the first smaller top you pass (Teevnabinnia, name not shown on the OS) and Mweelrea SE Spur. Climb up from the col -- it becomes very steep but feasible.

Hard slog!
by paddyhillsbagger 16 Feb 2013
Did Mweelrea SE Spur along with Teevnabinnia to complete the Mweelrea area list. Started from B (L840 633) near the pier at Clogh. Proved to be a very steep, boggy and tiring walk through rough terrain. The views were magnificent however. There were a lot of large free standing boulders and rocks between the 2 tops and some rocky outcrops mark the summit of the SE Spur. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/474/comment/14925/

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. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/474/comment/18550/

narrow 'gullys'
by YoungJohn 9 Aug 2018
Be careful at the start of this mountain. Grass covers deep narrow 'gullys' or drains. Be sure of your footing. This is a hard slog of a mountain though we were blessed with a good day. Spectaculat views of killary harbour and conamara. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/474/comment/20006/
