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 871st highest place in Ireland. Bweengduff is the most easterly summit in the Boggeragh Mountains area.

The Shiddy Way?
by Colin Murphy  17 Mar 2023
This isn't a particularly interesting hill, although after a prolonged rainy period, I did see multiple gushing streams on my walk, some of them having flooded sections of the forest track. There is also now a relatively new sign next to the trig pillar saying that the track is part of The Shiddy Way, although I can find no information about this online, so have no idea where it starts and ends.
