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 summit in Ireland. Beennabrack is the most southerly summit in the Brandon Group area.

This view northwards, from the top of Beennabrack, shows the full extent of the valley leading to the sea at Cloghane. A tongue of Loch Tarbh is sticking out at the foot of the cliffs. After that the ground falls away steeply to the valley floor, with Loch Ui Fhiannachta and Loch Neil Phadraig beyond. To the left of the photo, the white thread of the Pilgrims' Route is just visible, skirting the end of a ridge leading up to Gearhane. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/273/comment/2941/
