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.

Slievecushnabinnia, or at least points near it, have a great selection of views. You can see Galtymore and the edge of the fine scarp overlooking Lough Curra and ridge leading to Galtymore. From points near it you can see right into Lough Curra, and also along the northern slopes of the Galtees to the two northerly outliers: Cush and Knockastakeen.

This view shows the substantial cairn on top of the mountain and the wall stretching off to the east. The rock is red sandstone which is the predominant rock on most of the Galtees. The wall makes up the boundary between Tipperary and Limerick. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/64/comment/557/
