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 959th highest in Ireland. Binevenagh is the most northerly summit in the Keenaght area.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Binevenagh in area Keenaght, Ireland
Picture: Cross at mountain crash site.
 
A magnificent walk.
by tyfan  6 Apr 2012
We climbed Binevenagh from the track at the corner of St Aidans church grounds, this narrow track climbs steeply and crosses a forest road, continues through the forest and exits at a wooden stile ( 15 mins ) and there we turned left. At this point you can see the grandeur of the Binevenagh area. We followed the path round clockwise, up to the top of the cliffs, past Binevenagh lake and followed the path over a metal stile and down a grassy valley completing the circular walk.
On our way back we stopped at the cross marking an RAF plane crash, the cross lists the names of nine crew members who were killed in the crash. Elevation 265 mts IC 68497 ITM 30652.
Before we re-entered the forest we saw 5 buzzards hovering overhead, a totally magnificent walk. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/860/comment/6740/
