Agnew's Hill is probably the peak marked as Benwellerorie on Mercator's map of SE Ulster, 1595. Rory's Glen is a townland on the SE slopes, named after Rory Ogue McQuillan [OSM, vol. x, p. 118]. Benwellerorie may represent an anglicisation of *Binn Mhaol Ruairí, 'Rory's bare peak'. The English name is derived from the Agnews (Ir. Ó Gníomh), a family of Scottish stock who came to prominence in this area in the 17th century after the decline of the McQuillan's fortunes.
Agnew's Hill is the 648th highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/533/
