Why Scarriff is so named is something of a mystery, as it is quite some distance from the mainland in deep water. One possible solution is to interpret the name as Ir. garbh, 'rough', with a prosthetic s-, as happens with many other words, such as teach and creag.
Scarriff Island is the 1272th highest place in Ireland. Scarriff Island is the most southerly summit and also the most westerly in the Dunkerron Mountains area. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1000/?PHPSESSID=dcul2i8v9teopmiuqigejdak47
