The element poll, which seems unusual for a hill name, is explained by the fact that there is a pool virtually on the summit. A surprising number of streams rise on the slopes of this hill. No graves are evident to explain the element leacht. Also known as Pigeon Top.   Pollnalaght is the 1168th highest place in Ireland. Pollnalaght is the most easterly summit in the S Donegal/W Tyrone area.

One metre decides the high point! .. by Harry Goodman   (Show all for Pollnalaght)
 
Pollnalaght to Dooish
by three5four0  9 May 2010
Leave Pidgeon Top around 3737070713 D and walk out into the heather, crossing a fence and then a track on your way to 3695370089 E. The Trig point is hidden from view by a large bank till you are close by, the top of the bank being of a greater height than the Trig point. Views are extensive in all directions, i could make out some of the hills i climbed over the May Day Bank Holiday and the 3 hills I have left to climb in Northern Ireland.

From the Trig Point descend over rough ground to cross the river at around 3630970377 F (2 fences to cross on the way here) and walk beside the stream picking up the track at 3596870310 G following it down hill to the minor road at 3481369394 H, turning left along it and right at 3508068437 I and left again at 3334168561 J. At 3316267381 K and right again at 32712667416 L. See Dooish for rest of route. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/961/comment/4692/
