There are several peaks in the Sheeffry Hills and elsewhere in Mayo whose names begin with Tawny-. These are derived from Ir. tamhnach, the original meaning of which seems to be a clearing. It comes to mean 'field' and in upland areas it often has the meaning of an arable area amongst rough upland pasture. This hill is named Sheffry Hill on William Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830).   Tawnyard is the 779th highest place in Ireland. Tawnyard is the most southerly summit and also the second most easterly in the Sheeffry Hills area.
