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.

This view from the summit looking SE shows from the left and on the skyline, the Knockanaffrin ridge, in front of the bulk of the Comeragh plateau, which continues on the skyline to the right.

Much of the surface of the mountain was (as of 2004) covered in fairly low heather. The summit is easily reached from the East and probably many other directions. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/411/comment/953/
