Ó Cíobháin gives Beann, 'peak', as the true name of this mountain. Apparently the name Bruach na Binne really belonged to a feature a few miles to the W overlooking the Bridia Valley and was mistakenly applied to this peak by the sappers.   Broaghnabinnia is the 82nd highest place in Ireland. Broaghnabinnia is the most northerly summit in the Dunkerron Mountains area.

Great looking, summit disappoints.
by Colin Murphy  30 Sep 2015
This summit is as tough as they come - there isn't any easy way up. It is unrelentingly steep up to about 500m. The views are magnificent and there are many impressive precipitous drops and rock formations. Unfortunately the summit doesn't live up to the promise of the climb. Once you get to the E-W summit area the terrain is just a dull, grassy slog with barely a fist-sized stone to break the monotony. The views in all directions are great however. It is a mountain that looks far more impressive from a distance, as can be seen from the shot, taken from the upper slopes of Mothaillín. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/18336/
