A large group of rocks on the east side of Bellavally Gap are known as the Black Rocks or Maguire's Chair. This was the site of an assembly on 'Donagh Sunday', the last Sunday in July (MacNeill, 175-77). According to Dalton, the name has led to an erroneous belief that this was the inauguration site of the Maguires, and this is confirmed by MacNeill.   Benbrack is the 562nd highest place in Ireland. Benbrack is the third highest point in county Cavan.

A chara,
can you tell me why Cuilcagh Benbeg Benbrack and Bencroy are referred to as Sligo mountains while they are seperated from that range and are known locally as forming the Cuilcagh range.
