There is a hillfort on summit named Rathcoran and a second one to NW. The entry in PNCW for Rathcoran refers to an article on The Excavation of a Burial Cairn on Baltinglass Hill in PRIA xlvi (1941), p. 221. This makes it clear that Baltinglass Hill is the English name of this height. Has been called Coolanarrig.   Baltinglass Hill is the 994th highest place in Ireland.

Neolithic burial cairn inside an Iron Age hill fort
Short Summary created by kernowclimber, wicklore  9 Jun 2014
The summit lies inside the bivallate Iron Age hill fort of Rathcoran that completely encloses a Neolithic burial cairn thought to be contemporaneous with Newgrange, close to the trig point. Stripped of its earthen cover and robbed of its stone, the cairn comprises 3 passage-tombs and 2 single-chambered tombs. The site was excavated in 1934-6 revealing evidence of the cremations of at least 3 adults and a child. Fragments of quartz unearthed during the excavation suggest its use for decorative purposes. Finds of carbonised hazelnuts, wheat grains and a saddle quern point to the extent of local climate change, affecting both the landscape cover and human settlement patterns. In the Neolithic, the climate was drier and warmer, Wicklow's glens were densely wooded, people lived much higher in the uplands and farmers were able to cultivate arable crops above 1,000ft. Park to the right of the graveyard in Baltinglass at approximately S871 887 A and follow the lane next to the graveyard wall which enters a series of grazing fields. The approach is steep in places and involves negotiating a dense patch of gorse if you head towards the cross. By keeping to the right of the cross and heading uphill diagonally, the worst of the gorse is easily avoided. This hill offers excellent views east to the Glen of Imaal with Keadeen and Lugnaquilla being particularly prominent. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/864/comment/5623/
