Summary for Mount Eagle : Small hill with good views.

Picture: Mount Eagle from Birreencorragh Sth, Glennamong on skyline.
This is a fairly small summit crowded by the Birreencorraghs to the east and Buckoogh to the south. Nevertheless it has good views to the western Nephin Begs. It can be reached from Buckoogh (keep west of the forestry) or as part of a visit to the Bireencorraghs.
To the NE there is a small hill, not currently included in MV lists lacking the required prominence. The summit has a small cairn.

Member Comments for Mount Eagle

Eagle Eye Views
by bryanmccabe 12 Feb 2011
Mount Eagle is unlikely to be visited as a destination in itself; visitors will most likely be en route to Birreencorragh from the Srahmore River valley or, as in our case, on a traverse between Buckoogh and Birreencorragh. To its south, in the Skerdagh River valley, the widespread afforestation is both an eyesore (due to felling and the irregular shape) and a hindrance to a more desirable direct route from Buckoogh to Birreencorragh. Although 124m lower than its nearest neighbour Birreencorragh West top, it is a much more rewarding summit, with stunning expansive views of the entire Nephin Beg Range (including Slieve Carr), with Clare Island also visible through a gap between peaks. Approaching from Buckoogh, walkers may be tempted to short-cut through the felled area, which is much longer than it appears from the ridge north off Buckoogh. Best to keep west of the forest edge. Walkers may prefer to keep left of the steeper rockier section on the south west approach to Mount Eagle. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/704/comment/6238/

In the shadow of the eagle
by Colin Murphy 9 Jun 2011
This small unnamed body of water in the Mount Eagle's shadow, along with the forestry and the small 380m-ish hill in the background, gives the spot quite a picturesque, Alpine feel. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/704/comment/6285/

Nice spot for lunch
by Colin Murphy 9 Jun 2011
Pic shows the location of the small cairn on the elongated Mount Eagle, as seen from the approach from Bireencorragh West Top. The top is a mixture of grass and rocks and offers wonderful all round views. Good place for the sambos and tea. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/704/comment/6284/
