This is the highest of the three tops of Knocknabro. The peak marked as Knocknabro on OSi maps is somewhat lower (530m) than this peak. The origin of the name is uncertain. John O’Donovan suggested Cnoc na Bró, ‘hill of the quern’, though without any explanation of the name. Another possibility is that the final element is the same as in Broemountain. In Welsh briw means ‘cut’ or ‘wound’. This may refer to the declivity between the two peaks which forms a pass between Rathmore to the N and the Clydagh Valley to the S. See also Broemountain, Inishnabro and Brow Head.
