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 1147th highest place in Ireland. Keeraunnageeragh is the second most northerly summit in the South Connemara area.

Picture: Looking west from Keeraunnageeragh...the deceptively handy fire break is mid picture.
 
Don't bother combining this hill with its neighbour.

I did this summit as part of a 3 hour loop with Cappanalaurabaun. Unless there's a connecting route I'm unaware of I definitely wouldn't recommend it as You have to descend through some high tussocky grass while negotiating a lot of hidden groundwater, streams and fallen trees. There is an obvious fire break in the forest when you look west from Keeraunnageeragh and that's what tempted me onwards. It was by no means the worst traverse I've ever done but it was messy and definitely not for anyone with short legs! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/953/comment/20878/
