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.

It's an ill wind...

As I ate my egg sandwich near the summit area, I amused myself by counting the wind turbines visible to the naked eye from Glenaneagh. I got to 42, but I may have missed some. I know they're sort of a good thing, but they have their downside in the way they blight the scenery. Put them all at sea! Roll on nuclear fusion!
