This peak overlooks Ballaghisheen (Ir. Bealach Oisín). The anglicisation Knocknacusha seems unrelated to Cnoc Osaidh and suggests an Irish form Cnoc na Coise.   Knocknacusha is the 428th highest summit in Ireland.

A visit to Knocknacusha is probably best seen as a short trip, not as part of a longer route. The sort of place you can try if you want an easy walk, but not without its rewards. You can start at Ballaghisheen, a mountain pass. There's space for just a few cars here, if you are driving. Ballaghisheen is at just over 300m so the climb to the top at around 551m is not a great strain. The summit is unexciting -- there is a small pile of rocks at the top.

The view south is towards Coomura Mtn (666m) over an area of very broken ground with a lot of bare rock. Just right of centre near the top of the picture is a big glacier flattened slab. On the way up to Knocknacusha there's a couple of similar pieces of glacial handiwork to look at. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/364/comment/1846/
