Unnamed on Tim Robinson's map, but a lower peak (454m) to the SW is named Binn Bhreac. 'Maumonght' is odd as an anglicised form and does not suggest any Irish version. It is probably a typo for 'Maumought'.
Maumonght is the 282nd highest summit in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/269/
