Tawnaghmore appears to be identical with Thauney, one of the peaks mentioned by Máire MacNeill, which is visited on Garland Sunday by the children of Belderg. Berries are gathered, and if the berries are plentiful, it is said that the crops will be good [MacNeill, 189]. Walks: for a cliff-top route from Porturlin to Belderg, passing near Tawnaghmore, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 78-79.   Tawnaghmore is the 1067th highest place in Ireland.

A track leads to the saddle between Tagwnaghmore and point 303 meters from G980 402 A. It was a bit awkward trying to park on the side of the road there without blocking a gate or the road so I had a look round and parked outside the school where there's a shoulder off the road, this being a saturday. The school is marked on the os map due east of the track about a fifteen minute walk away but maybe it wouldn't be a good idea on weekdays. The track peters out into clusters of stones and then a boggy section. There's a fence to be negotiated at the saddle. I had asked a farmer I ran into at the start if it was ok to go up the mountain this way and he said no problem so I hopped over the fence and turned left to make the final ascent. Nice views over to Glinsk and the coastline and to the south the shapes of Slieve Mor, Slieve Carr Nephin Beg Nephin Mor and others inbetween are clearly visible.

As mentioned in the previous comment parking is difficult on the tarred road but in a vehicle with normal ground clearance you can turn and park at the end of the bog track, F9713740388 B, after this point the track is of a bygone era not pretty in wet weather. Alternative route from the opposite side parking at farm road F9544241331 C . Truly good views from summit trig. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/910/comment/18625/
