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 402nd highest place in Ireland.

While you are on Knocknacusha take a walk along the east ridge. You can go over 600m without dropping much. The view is great for so little work. To your right Cloon Lough will come into view between you and the well known Mullaghannatin area. To your left Colly mountain and the southern arm of the Glenbeigh horseshoe. The picture shows the front view including the south side of the Reeks in the clouds on the left, the sharp peak of Broaghnabinnia just right of centre and the lumpy mass of Stumpa Duloigh (784m) to its right.
