Referred to as Curraghduff in the original Vandeleur-Lynam list. This is the name of the townland in which the peak is situated, but as Ir. corr means 'round hill', the townland name may well be derived from this peak. However, the anglicised form suggests Ir. currach, 'marsh' rather than corr, and even the local pronunciation noted at logainm.ie points to currach rather than corr, so the matter is unclear.   Curraghduff is the highest mountain in the Waterford Coastal Hill area and the 78th highest in Ireland.
