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.

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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/910/comment/18625/
