This peak is unnamed on OS maps. On William Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830) the name Tievereivagh appears on the W slopes. Whilst it is not certain that this this is the name of the hill as a whole, as opposed to a particular flank, it appears to be the only name available for this peak. For a walk around the base of Tievereivagh, see Siúlóidí Acla, walk L. Previously Derreen in MV.   Tievereivagh is the 1182th highest place in Ireland.

Park opposite the cemetery at 718971 A (enough room for several cars) and take the minor road at 717971 B (Breanaskil). Follow this road up hill till 711968 C, where you turn left onto a hill track. After a short distance this track forks and from here you can either head straight up hill or follow the right hand fork to take in pt 230 before Derreens' summit.

The views are superb from the small summit, which has several rock out crops with glorious twisted strata on show. We had picked this hill for what should have been a bad day weather wise but turned out otherwise. Short enough to be walked on a summers evening after dinner or grabbed between showers, recommended for the views.

You can return the same way as your ascent or, descend steeply through some benched peat, to a track south east from the summit. There is a messy area where stone is being extracted, but after that you can follow the old track round & above a series of deserted ruined cottages, slowly descending towards Achill Sound. You may be able to follow this track right round the hill & after a short section across open hillside, rejoin your route of ascent. We descended to the road via one of the lane ways that accessed the track, from where it was just over a 1 km back to the car, with a short stop off at the pub beside the PO for a nice pint of Guinness.
