Joyce suggests that the peak (binn) in question is Galtymore, which seems logical. Glencushabinnia is a townland north-east of here.   Slievecushnabinnia is the 59th highest summit in Ireland.

The summit of Slievecushnabinnia is not located at the spot height marked on the OS map as 766m but at a higher point about 500 metres to the West. If you look at the OS map carefully, you can see that the true summit is inside a 770 metre contour. There is a large cairn on the true summit (R 85770 24000 D)(Approx 775m ASL) and Simon3 has a picture of it shown on this page. My photo shows the view from Galtymore showing the 766m spot height and the position of the true summit. On the old half inch OS map, the summit is shown in the correct position with a height of 2,549 ft. Perhaps the 766m spot height actually refers to the name 'Monacloghana' which is printed just below it on the OS map. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/64/comment/2082/
