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.

Above 700 metres the ascent to the indiscernible summit of Slievecushnabinnia became smothered in low passing cloud. Ahead of me I saw another walker, he appeared and disappeared at intervals through layers of semi transparent mist. Try as I did, I could not catch him. Eventually the phantom vapourised completely as the visibility fell to a few metres. After visiting the many possible summits of Slievecushnabinnia I reached the boundary wall that runs along the top. I huddled in the right angle where the wall turns towards Galtymore. The wind howled most of the time I sat there and then in stunning moments of total silence all sound seemed to be sucked out of the mountains, if you strained you ear you felt you could hear the clouds rustle pass. These sharp transitions into silence left one with a surreal sense of quietude suspended on a sense of anticipation that at any moment the wind would howl again. Only once during my time at the wall did Galtymore emerge, flirtatiously beckoning invitingly over my shoulder for an instant, clear of mist, just as it had been when I climbed it in July.
