It is noteworthy that this peak is located partially in the townland of Glenough Upper (Ir. Gleann Achaidh Uachtarach). It seems too big a coincidence that the names are so similar. They are more likely to be variant forms of a single name, but this is not certain. Any further information on the correct name of this peak would be very welcome.   Glenaneagh is the 1252th highest place in Ireland.

The turbines have invaded!
by Colin Murphy  28 Jan 2022
A forest track begins at R 957 541 starD, just before a sharp bend in road, where there is parking for a few cars. Proceed up the track to R 959 543 starE where the track curves to the left and appears to peter out. Continue along to the left however, because it swings right again up towards the forestry, albeit in a deteriorating fashion, but it is still quite passable. It continues almost up to the tree line, where you cross a short strip of grass and continue up through the mature wood, which is easy going. This will eventually deposit you at a barbed wire fence, beyond which is a grassy strip and a grassy area. Cross these to take you on to the substantial wind farm track, turn left and follow the track as it curves around the trees for about 300m until you see the turbine on your right. Duck under a single wire (possibly electrified) fence, but easily passable, and proceed up the grassy slope to the left of the turbine. The high point - in the middle of an area of short grass - is marked by a small pile of stones. From here it is easy to take in Ring Hill. While the scenery is pleasant, the entire landscape seems to have been invaded by turbines on every hill in every direction. Car to car for both tops took me just under 2 hours.
