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.

It’s hard to know where the top of this mountain is. There is a very prominent cairn near the right angle of the wall, but it didn’t strike me as the highest point. I saw two more cairns over on the way to Carrignabinnia, and went over to investigate them. On the way the ground on the Limerick side of the wall was excellent, while on the Tipp side it was quite soggy. These cairns didn’t seem to be a highest point either but where excellent warning beacons to the steep drop beside them. I headed back to what I judged to be the highest point and, lo and behold, found a little cairn. I include a photo of what must be the top. From this I headed down the spur called Knockanuss. On way I found a very impressive yet seemingly incongruous cairn. From where I followed Lonely Planet’s directions to a grassy knoll, although I actually think it could be the ring fort marked on the O.S. map at R868258 F. From here I turned due east to meet a forestry fence and walked south along it until I found a stile to cross it. Beyond this fence there was a road and I turned left down it until I reached a V where there was a ruined chimney. I took the left at this V which took me back to the Clydagh Valley car park. The Galtees are a cracking range. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/64/comment/2101/
