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.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Maumonght in area Twelve Bens, Ireland

Maumonght has great views westwards, which is not surprising since it is the most westerly of the 12 Bens group (over 500m anyway).

The picture was taken on a somewhat fuzzy day, nevertheless it shows many features of interest. The lake below is Lough Nahillion. Just beyond it, to the left, is Cregg Hill (297m) with a substantial mast on it (only just visible in the pic). In line with the mast is Clifden and beyond it - Slyne Head.

In line with the right (north) edge of Lough Nahillion across some forest are Lough Auna (nearer) and Lough Shanakeever. Locals have reported seeing strange humped monsters in both of these lakes. There's even a website about it, so it must be true. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/269/comment/710/
