There are numerous spurs running off Maumtrasna, such as Knocklaur, Benwee, Leynabricka, Skeltia and Buckaun, but few are peaks in their own right. This area was formerly in Co. Galway, but is now in Mayo. An earlier name for Maumtrasna is Formnamore (Ir. Formna Mór, 'great shoulder'). Roderic O'Flaherty mentions in this 1684 as one of the boundaries of Iarchonnacht or West Connacht: It is surrounded on the east with Loughmeasg [Lough Mask], the isthmus and river of Cong, Lough Orbsen [Lough Corrib], and the river of Galway; on the south with the bay of Gallway [sic] and the western ocean; on the west and north with the same ocean, and with the mountains of Formna more further on the north. [O'Flaherty, 7-8] That the name Formnamore corresponds to Maumtrasna is confirmed by a reference in H. C. Hart's Climbing in the British Isles (1895). The name Maumtrasna originally applies to the pass on the road between L. Nafooey and L. Mask, which also gives its name to a townland in this area. Walks: for a route around Lough Nadirkmore and over the shoulder of Buckaun, see Kevin Corcoran, West of Ireland Walks, 123-32.   Mám Trasna is the highest mountain in the Partry & Joyce area and the 138th highest in Ireland.
