Canon Power gave the two alternative translations, so he was clearly unaware of any story which would resolve the mystery. There is a small cairn at the summit, which could be the remains of the monument in question.   Laghtnafrankee is the 505th highest summit in Ireland.

A Comeragh Overview
by Harry Goodman  27 Jul 2011
Having arrived down for a week-end walking in the Comeraghs we decided, on the evening of 27 May 2011 to have a short walk up Laghtnafrankee following jackill's route as posted in the short summary parking at S2503218643 B. This was a first visit to these mountains and the main advantage of the walk, in addition to stretching our legs after the drive down from Belfast, was to have an invaluable overview of much of the area we expected to cover over the next three days. From the top R2351918151 C we had a fine perspective of the Knockanaffrin Ridge, part of the Coumfea plateau and Seefin. Our short ramble was 3.6km and we were up and down in forty five minutes. Clearly for anyone with more time to spare the relatively nearby tops of Laghtnafrankee SW Top and Long Hill could be included in a longer walk.
