A cairn at the summit is named Carn Seefin on the old ½ inch map (from Carn Suí Finn, 'cairn of Fionn's seat'). This is probably the hill named Knock Siffingen, located between Galway Bay and L. Corrib, on Speed's map of Connaught (1610). Has been called Derroura.   Keeraunnageeragh is the 1141th highest place in Ireland. Keeraunnageeragh is the second most northerly summit in the South Connemara area.

New Comment: A Dr Jeckyll, Mr Hyde walk
by TommyV  29 Oct 2018
This walk starts out as a pleasant stroll through Derroura Wood from a forest entrance at M05739 48822 C. Follow the forrest track for about 1.5 kilometers then take the trail that veers off to the left at M56664 47931 D. After awhile you will encounter three mounds of gravel at M05673 47631 E, this is the indicator to take the short steep climb on the right that brings you up to the Derroura mountain bike trail. Here the walk turns from Dr Jeyckle to Mr Hyde. Cross the bike trail and hit up the waist deep tussocky grass for a grueling 500 meter push to the large cairn at the summit. Be very careful as it's impossible to see where your feet are going. The inspiring views of Lough Corrib on the way back are hard to enjoy as you will be too busy picking your steps to safety.
