Since Beenbo is clearly a separate name (probably from Ir. Binn Bó, 'peak of the cow'), it seems likely that it is the true name of the summit, while Gob an Iolair applies originally to the sharp point just N of the summit.
Gob an Iolair is the 634th highest summit in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/535/
