Longest Mountain name in Ireland?
by wicklore  10 Jul 2010
There are four hills bearing the name ‘Keelogyboy’ in this area of upland. Three of them are distinguished by where they are in relation to the mother ship, Keelogyboy Mountain. Therefore we also have the SW Top, the NE Top, and the delightfully oriental Far East Top. Keelogyboy Mountain North East Top (KMNET) and indeed Keelogyboy Mountain South West Top (KMSWT) are serious mouthfuls to pronounce. Both consist of 9 syllables, and take 2 seconds each to pronounce! In fact I will lay the claim to have found the two mountains with the longest names in Ireland. Both KMSWT and KMNET consist of 30 letters in their names! Several MountainViews summits have 20 letters or more and one, Silvermine Mountains Far East Top, even has 29 letters. But surely these two Keelogyboys take the long name medal?

Back to the business at hand. It is unlikely that a walker would simply climb one of these hills, and would probably try to visit a few. There is room for one car at G7668 4012 B where the paved road ends. This road then continues as a farm track deep into the valley between Crockauns, Hangman’s Hill and the Keelogyboys. The ground underfoot is grassy bog and shouldn’t be too heavy going unless after a spell of rain. If heading directly to KMNET aim to the left of the serious looking cliffs at G775 395 D, and beware of loose soil and bog on the ascent. In fact a sign back on the main road warns that this area is prone to landslides so be warned! Simon3 has described and illustrated the curious limestone extrusions at the summit in his post. He has also captured the northern cliffs in the short summary photo. There is another interesting feature on this hill. It is a quaint little lake called Sramore Lough that lies in the col between KMNET and Keelogyboy Mountain. A north-south boundary fence goes right to the waters edge and continues on the other side, clearly showing that the lake is split in two in terms of ownership.
