This peak is unnamed on the OSI Discovery map, surely one of the highest peaks to lack a name. The name Corranabinnnia is found in walking guides. It is also named Cushcamcarragh (from Ir. Coiscéim Charrach, 'rocky step') in atlases. This name also appears on Bald's map of Mayo (1830), while the name Curranabinna is applied to the cirque north of the peak. Walks: for a route taking in Bengorm, Corranabinnia and Glennamong, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 72-73.   Corranabinnia is the third highest mountain in the North Mayo area and the 101st highest in Ireland.

Nephin Begs - The Long Way
by seanc15  1 Oct 2014
Corranabinnia and the 'central' Nephins are a bit of a surprise given the poor press this range sometimes gets. I undertook the Glendahurk horseshoe walk last July (2013) and was well impressed by this tramp along with a few crags on Corranabinnia, both on the arrete and on the North East face. Large slabs but not easy accessed. The rock on Corranabinnia is a bit suspect - what I thought was a nice hold turned out to be a loose flake and a near fall at 2000 feet. A nice airy place all the same to do a bit of climbing. I subsequently picked up on a Joey Glover article from 1960 which described a North to South approach across the main Nephin Beg range. He referred to this peak as Cushcumcarragh. Is this the name of the most northern of the twin tops?

I subsequently undertook this traverse on the 20th of June this year in perfect conditions but it was easily the toughest walk I had in this country - and lonely to. I never met a sinner all along the 20 odd miles of this walk. I wasn't trying to rush it but it took 13 hours and a few stops before I had a pint in Mulranney. For anyone interested in this route, the starting point is beside the Kiltane GAA pitch, Bangor - grid ref F86503 22662 D. The Joey Glover article can be found under 'Irish Mountaineering 1960.' Worth a read - no energy bars or Gortex in sight nevermind the dreaded Lycra. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/98/comment/17699/
