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.

A cheeky pudding below the Galty ridge
Short Summary created by Peter Walker  6 Apr 2013
Lough Curra Mtn crouches at the foot of the cliffs that defend the north side of the Galty ridge through much of its length: as such an approach from the south would be logistically tricky. From the north park south of Clydagh Bridge at (874 278 A) ('road unsuitable for vehicles' sign here) and take the right hand track into the woods. A couple of kilometres of waymarks lead to twin signposts pointing the way to either the Galtymore or Lough Curra stiles: the latter should be chosen. This leads to the edge of the trees, from where more waymarks and a decent path lead up to the lough. From here the outflow is crossed, and the facing short grassy slope leads to the unmarked top, an excellent spot for inspecting Galtymore's northern ramparts and for admiring the vast expanse of plain that the range overlooks.

The top is relatively easily included in the superb Cush - Slievecushnabinnia circuit by descending north from the latter until its eastern screes have been outflanked and a descending traverse can then be used to reach the lough. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/277/comment/5037/
