The Irish name Macha na gCab and the anglicised name Beennabrack have very different meanings. It seems unlikely that they originally referred to the same feature. An Seabhac gives the name Binn na mBroc ('peak of the badgers') for this hill (TCCD, 143, 233), which shows that Beennabrack is a corruption. He does not mention Macha na gCab.   Beennabrack is the 268th highest place in Ireland. Beennabrack is the most southerly summit in the Brandon Group area.

Coming down from the Brandon ridge at Fallaghnamara , Q459 078 C ,623m.
Looking down the valley you can see Loch Dubh, Loch Geal, Loch Tarbh cut into the hillside above,Loch Ui Fhiannachta and the corner of Loch Neil Phadraig.The Summit of Ballysitteragh is just out of shot on the extreme right , Beenabracks summit is in the centre of the shot over Loch Geal with the Connor pass over the right hand corner of Loch Ui Fhiannachta ,behind the pass is Slievanea.You can make out where the tarred road ends at the farm at the end of the Pilgrims Route in the area of green fields between Loch Ui Fhiannachta and Loch Geal. There is plenty of room to park a few cars by the side of the road just before you get to the farmyard. The dwellings in the farmyard are uninhabited except for a few dogs the farmer working the land keeps there for rounding up his sheep, these dogs are locked in when the farmer is not there. After the farm there is a bridge over the stream and a gate with a stile , the road has changed to a rough track that leads over the gap to the Dingle side of the Mountains to Na Gleanna Thuaidh.
