Whilst at a folk gig I heard a song that I really loved, supposedly named after a mountain in either Co. Antrim or Armagh (I can't remember which) and I can remember what it sounds like, but have no idea how to spell it - which doesn't help me find out more about it.

I was hoping someone could point me in the direction the the correct spelling - it sounded like either:

"archie coon"
or
"archie coom"

basically how you'd say the name Archie, and then 'coon' or 'coom'. The song itself was written in the 18th-ish century by a man who left Ireland to find work in Scotland, and could see the hill of his birthplace across the sea.

Thank you in advance, I know it's pretty obscure!
