Whilst the origin of this unusual name, along with Bweengduff, is unclear, they are almost certainly related to the nearby settlement of Bweeng (Ir. Na Boinn) and the townlands of Beennamweel East and West. One possibility is that Boinn is a corruption of Ir. muing, ‘rushy area’, and this explanation would fit well with its application to an upland areas of moderate height in Bweeng Little and Bweengduff.   Bweengduff is the 868th highest place in Ireland. Bweengduff is the most easterly summit in the Boggeragh Mountains area.

Enjoyable Walk !
by damomac  24 Jun 2016
Nice handy walk on good roadway which has recently been upgraded to facilitate installation of more wind turbines. Park at forest entrance and it's approx 3km to the telecommunication masts. For a more challenging walk, loop around Bweeng Little and continue on down to Laharn Cross (6km from car). Do it on a sunday evening and you might take in some irish dancing (http://irdduhallow.com/tourism-and-culture-north-cork-kerry/culture/laharn-cross-dancing/).

Turn right at the cross roads and after 200 meters take the next gravel road on right and this will take you back to the masts. Parts of this are a good workout but the path surface is very good. Continue past the masts and back to the car for a 13.3km walk which can take 2 hrs 45 mins. Good mobile phone coverage throughout all the walk.

The Fiat Punto is still there, now minus it's engine ! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/757/comment/18582/
