Looking west to Mount Dungarvan

Mount Dungarvan lies some four kilometres north of Mt. Galwey. A much more massive peak, it rises to 2566 m. Dungarvan is the Irish term for a rough and broken mountain. It is also the name of a seaport in County Waterford, Ireland. The mountain consists of a series of pinnacles made from basalt of the Purcell Sill (a sill is a layer of igneous rock which was forced between layers of sedimentary rock and then cooled and solidified). Whether the mountain is named because it is a "rough and broken" mountain or in honour of the Irish seaport is not known, however the summit ridge, when viewed from the northeast, is made up of a number of small, broken segments.
