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 286th highest place in Ireland.

30 years farming, the same time I have been walking on the Galtees. There is a sign we agree on (go back because there is more than one). The sign says NO Dogs allowed, we agree on that also. Just to put you and the rest of us (me included) dog lovers in the picture. They the people that farm here (and I have asked them) dont want any dogs collered, in bags, carried, in a harnes, alive, dead, china etc etc apart from their own dogs on the hill. My dog is always on a coller, but will I take him up there? no. Also If you look at the map board "Lough Curra" in the car park it says on the bottem "NO DOGS ALLOWED EVEN ON A LEASH" (I know you didnt go in this way).

As for Lough Curra Mountain, I think Mountain Views should stick to whats on the OS maps that way there is no confusion about what is a mountain, to me its a morain and always will be. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/277/comment/4598/
