Carrickrawor (An Chreig Ramhar [LL]), Slievetrasna, Slievestucan and the Castle are marked as satellite peaks or slopes of this mountain. Corrakit (Corr an Chait) is a townland to the east, on the north side of the Windy Gap. [OSI]   Carnavaddy is the 642nd highest place in Ireland.

I know this mountain as Carnawaddy, and as far as I know, that is what it is known locally as.
Perhaps that is the name of the big cairn at the summit, 'Carn a mhadra', which is the reputed burial place of Cuchulain's dog Bran.
There are some great rock features to the south and east of the summit, including a particularly interesting chasm as you go down towards the Windy Gap. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/531/comment/2840/
