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 summit in Ireland. Broaghnabinnia is the most northerly summit in the Dunkerron Mountains area.

Poor old Broaghnabinnia. Described by David Herman [Hill Walkers Kerry] as ".. not the most enticing of mountains .." whose summit is ".. a tiny plain of boggy grass .. disappointing .."

Can't say I entirely agree. This summit has some dramatic slopes particularly on the northern side. Even this picture of the southern side shows cliffs and steepness.

The picture was taken one November from around Knocknabreda. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/2558/
