There is a mapping problem regarding the names of several peaks in this area in that the Irish and English names are not matched up. The Irish version of Derrygarriff is given as Péicín, but this name clearly belongs to Peakeen Mountain. The correct Irish version is Doire Gharbh, which has been assigned (erroneously?) on the 1:25,000 map to the lower peak between Moll's Gap and Lough Barfinnihy.   Derrygarriff is the 595th highest place in Ireland. Derrygarriff is the second most westerly summit in the Mangerton area.

Free as a bird

We were lucky to see a white tailed eagle gliding gracefully over Eirk Lough before before coming to rest on a rock, which provided the opportunity to capture a pic of the rarely seen bird of prey (at least for a city slicker!) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/481/comment/19804/
