Bedrock type: Olivine basalt lava, (Upper Basalt Formation)

According to legend, Foibhne, son of Taircheltar, was slain here. Binevenagh is unmistakable with its impressive basalt cliffs, 1235 ft. high, and a lower series of broken crags resembling fangs. Since Foibhne is a rather shadowy figure of whom little is known beyond his association with Binevenagh, one might suspect that this character has been created specifically to explain the hill-name, and that something else underlies the second element. At present nothing very concrete can be proposed, but it is worth noting the similarity in pronunciation to the second element of Rinn Seimhne (Island Magee), Muirtheimhne, Eamhna, the genitive form of Eamhain (Mhacha) and Samhna, genitive of Samhain.   Binevenagh is the third highest hill in the Keenaght area and the 982nd highest in Ireland. Binevenagh is the most northerly summit in the Keenaght area.

Derry259 on Binevenagh, 2010
by Derry259  9 Jan 2010
On new years eve decided to finish the year by doing Binevenagh.Four of us set of from a very icy St.Aidans carpark up through the forest,upon reaching the stile at forest edge we turned right and passed the Mass Rock on our way to the shoulder which lead to the summit. Knee deep snow in places made the going quite tough,especially for Vinny who was climbing his first hill.... (or as he said "ive climbed two hills today .....my first and last") Because of the snow we took a gradual meandering route upwards,following a gully which zig zagged toward the summit...On reaching the top we took advantage of the picnic tables at a frozen Binevenagh lake to have our lunch.(Brendan enjoyed his more than usual after making his older???? brother Anthony carry all in one rucksack) After spending some time taking in the stunning views including The Sperrins,Antrim Hills,Hills of Donegal and the winding river Roe , we descended through the forest mentioned in previous review and back to the car.....A good way to finish the year apart from myself and Anthony landing on our backsides as we left the graveyard at St Aidans..........
