This name is pronounced 'yokawn'. It is of obscure origin, but may refer to a pole or mast on the summit. It may have a parallel in Gokane Point, a headland south of Skibbereen. Feaghmaan East and West are townlands on the slopes of Geokaun.   Geokaun is the 1240th highest place in Ireland.

Surely the best view in Ireland .. by Cormacg   (Show all for Geokaun)
 
One of the easiest summits listed on Mountain Vie .. by dbloke   (Show all for Geokaun)
 
The summit is the other side of the gate
by three5four0  28 Sep 2011
Great views to be had from the car park here, and for little effort too. But beware ! The spot height is just on the other side of the locked gates of the mast compound. Luckily these are not high and can be crossed to reach the summit ( only a metre or 2 inside ), giving a polite wave to the cctv of course or ask the nice girl in the cabin at the entrance.
