Finnararagh is a corruption of Finnavogagh, the name of an area of rough pasture on the plateau W of this peak. The name is correctly recorded in the Ordnance Survey Name Book, but was misspelt when transferred to the map. The peak itself is locally called An Corrán, which aptly describes its crescent-shaped cliffs that dominate Lough Coomeen.   An Corrán is the 166th highest place in Ireland.

A Cloon View
by kernowclimber  5 Aug 2014
An Corrán lies on the Cloon Horseshoe walk in the wild and unspoilt Dunkerron Mountains which offer arguably some of the finest scenery in Ireland. This panorama was shot near its summit as the sun was sinking low in the western horizon. Macgillycuddy's Reeks can be seen in the background; the summits of Beann and Sallagh in the foreground; Cloon Lough and the Slieve Mish Mountains and Dingle Bay on the far left horizon.
