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 815th highest place in Ireland.

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: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/704/comment/6238/
