Unnamed on Tim Robinson's map, but a lower peak (454m) to the SW is named Binn Bhreac. 'Maumonght' is odd as an anglicised form and does not suggest any Irish version. It is probably a typo for 'Maumought'.   Maumonght is the 282nd highest summit in Ireland.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Maumonght in area Twelve Bens, Ireland

Maumonght is not so likely to be a target of choice for many walkers, more a place visited at the beginning or end of a walk. It’s a typical 12 Bens peak. Quartzite with little bog or vegetation growing on it. Starting places to reach it include the car park at Kylemore Abbey or L 744 513 A, the start of a track through a forest that can lead you to a point south of Bencullagh (An Chailleach). Maybe someone more familiar with this part of the Bens could say whether its straightforward to get to Maumonght from the vicinity of Cregg Hill.

The picture shows Maumonght from An Chailleach (Bencullagh). In the background, to the right, is the Renvyle Peninsula with Tully Mountain sticking up from it. Above one of the bumps on Maumonght (the third from the left) is, faintly near the horizon, Inishbofin Island. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/269/comment/708/
