Lough Curra nestles in a crook of the Galtee ridge below Slievecushnabinnia. This knoll is situated just to the north-east of the Lough Curra. It is unnamed on Ordnance Survey maps. The form Cnapán Loch an Churraigh is provided here as a translation into Irish of "Lough Curra Mound/Lump", assuming that Curra represents an anglisation of Ir. currach, ‘marsh, bog’. It is not to be understood as an attested historical form.   Lough Curra Mound is the 287th highest place in Ireland.
