Paddy Dillon gives another name for this mountain: Monabrack. It is joined to the main line of the Galtees by a broad ridge with extensive signs of bog-workings. According to Dillon, Monabrack comes from Móin na bhráca or speckled bog. Whatever about “speckled” the col certainly is an unusual sight at this height as shown in this picture taken from near the summit, looking north towards the main ridge.
