Mount Eagle may be a translation of Ir. Sliabh an Iolair, as is the case with the mountain of the same name in West Kerry. However, no Irish form has been found to support this.   Mount Eagle is the 814th highest place in Ireland.

Picture: Mount Eagle from Birreencorragh Sth, Glennamong on skyline.
 
Small hill with good views.
Short Summary created by simon3,  8 Jun 2011
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. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/704/comment/5463/
