Unnamed on Tim Robinson's map, but a lower peak (454m) to the SW is named Binn Bhreac. 'Maumonght' is odd as an anglicised form and does not suggest any Irish version. It is probably a typo for 'Maumought'.   Maumonght is the 282nd highest place in Ireland.

Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  24 Jun 2014
See comments for Bencullagh regarding route. From Bencullagh proceed NW for about 600m. The terrain is a mixture of grass and rock and firm underfoot. There is an easy 50m ascent from the col to the summit, which is marked by a cairn and affords spectacular views of the western seaboard. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/269/comment/5029/
