Finnararagh is a corruption of Finnavogagh, the name of an area of rough pasture on the plateau W of this peak. The name is correctly recorded in the Ordnance Survey Name Book, but was misspelt when transferred to the map. The peak itself is locally called An Corrán, which aptly describes its crescent-shaped cliffs that dominate Lough Coomeen.   An Corrán is the 166th highest place in Ireland.

Striding along the scarp from Coomnacronia to An Corrán gives dramatic views to the south, however spare a thought for the geology visible also.
This arch in the rock (an anticline) is a sign of the huge folding pressures that must have been here once. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/160/comment/6315/
