The meaning of dúch in this name is uncertain. It seems unlikely that it refers to 'ink', the usual sense of this word, but it may be a related adjective meaning 'dark' or 'misty', a shortened form of Ir. dubhach (or dumhach).   Dough Mountain is the 682nd highest place in Ireland.

Directions to the summit
by magnumpig  12 Aug 2019
I'd contend that Douagh isn't as ugly a hill as MadFrankie would suggest, with fine views from it's slopes towards Manorhamilton and Benbo especially. Plus it's always good for the soul to be in Lovely Leitrim. The summit is easily reached, and you can drive within about 30 metres of the trig point. I'd also suggest that this is probably the best way to walk to it to, unless you're a glutton for hardship. I'll give the driving instructions as if you're driving.

Although not shown on a number of the mapping databases there is a decent quality bog/forestry road at G 92054 42113 A this road for about a mile and a half, until you come to a junction with a track (again decent quality) going off to the right. Take this track until it's end and the trig point is about 30m to your left. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/572/comment/20618/
