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 652nd highest place in Ireland.

Nice little climb
by Colin Murphy  28 Nov 2022
The final top in a 4-top bagging day in Antrim Hills. This is a nice little hill with a fine aspect when viewed from the east, with a plunging slope dropping about 170m. A track (not bad but in poor condition in parts) leads most of the way to the summit from the north. A cairn of sorts becomes visible near top, although the actual unmarked high point is 200m further south. The sun was declining as I reached the top and luckily the great skies parted briefly. I imagine this summit offers decent views on fine days, but mine were limited. Still, a nice climb of about 150m ascent is worth the effort.
