The anglicised name Letterbreckaun comes from Leitir Bhriocáin [TR], 'Brecan’s wet hillside', and is the name of a townland on the slope of the hill. St. Brecan is a saint associated particularly with Co. Galway, who is said to have been the successor to St. Enda in Cill Éinne, the Aran Islands [TR, 106]. His name is also remembered in another townland called Letterbrickaun in Leenane parish and in the parish of Cill Bhriocáin / Kilbrickan, located south of Maam Cross.
Binn Bhriocáin is the second highest mountain in the Maamturks area and the 166th highest in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/161/
