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.

Mersey
by Conor74  26 Aug 2010
Since adding the comment, I have located my copy of Richard Mersey's 'Hills of Cork and Kerry' to see what he thought. For me, Mersey is a wonderfully evocative writer, that practical approach of a bygone age when mountains would be tackled in flannel shirts, tweed pants and sturdy shoes, with a couple of oranges and a pack of Sweet Afton for sustenance. And his book is a great mix of folklore, amateur geology and local history.

Anyway, he ascended Broaghnabinnia from the Bridia Valley side, and he described the climb as 'steep and invigorating', but he too found the top 'a real anti-climax after the alpine ascent'. So clearly Herman isn't alone in his view.

He notes the view of 'the great grey wall of the Reeks' before going on to tackle Stumpa Duloigh (or Knockduff as he calls it) and he notes that while the prominence means that there is a good descent before gaining height again, he adds that 'the ridge...is so spectacular that losing height does not seem to matter'.
