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 1143th highest place in Ireland. Keeraunnageeragh is the second most northerly summit in the South Connemara area.

Coillte comes out tops!
Short Summary created by paddyhillsbagger  14 Aug 2011
Access forest at M055 489 A where there is a Coillte forest track which winds it's way up the hillside. You can download a Coillte map of Derroura forest tracks on coillte.ie which is better than the OS map for this walk. Take a left at the top T-junction of tracks and head East to a rough forest cutting at M056 480 B. This short climb takes you up to the mountain bike trail from where you head roughly SSW across a boggy, heathery and rough terrain around the trees to the large summit cairn. You can shelter from any winds and/or rain at the top of the cairn in it's small hollow which I availed of to eat my sandwiches before heading down via the same route.
