Picture: Bennaunmore and Cappagh from Crohane
 
Unique area to the south of Lough Guitane
by ciarraioch  9 Oct 2011
Little to add by way of instructions to Conor74's excellent entry. This little mountain and the valleys to the south of Lough Guitane are known collectively as Cappagh (pron. KippOCK - a sure way of telling a native!), and the peak is just one of many items of interest in this vicinity. Bennaunmore itself is the stump of an ancient volcano. In addition to the six-sided rocks alluded to by Conor74, look out for the white easily pulverised stones, apparently the remains of volcanic ash. The valley was used in days of yore as a short cut from the Glenflesk and Sliabh Luachra area to Kilgarvan and Kenmare to the south. A rock by a barely discernable trackway, near W 038 812 A at the NW corner of Lough Crohane (if my memory is correct), holds the inscriptions of people who once travelled through this now-desolate valley. These include a 'DERMID O DONNOGHUE 1769'. The O'Donoghue's of the Glen were the local clan that managed to hold sway here despite the dispossessions following the Battle of the Boyne. The English administration was afraid to interfere with them, rough justice having being meted out to new settlers on this territory, and they were left in relative peace for a considerable period in the Penal Times. Geology, history and scenery in a most unusual setting. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/606/comment/6578/
