The anglicised form Bunnacunneen appears to be a corruption. It would suggest an original Irish name *Bun an Choinín, which would mean 'the end or tail of the rabbit’, but the true name is Binn Uí Chuinneáin, 'Kinnane’s peak’. Walks: for a route to the summit from the SW, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 54-55.   Binn Uí Chuinneáin is the 347th highest place in Ireland.

Joyce Country Challenge
by Patsy  3 Jul 2014
Excellent review Onzy, and very timely. The local hill walking group, (Lake District HWC) are organising the Joyce Country Challenge on Saturday July 19th. The Bunnacunneen circuit is a led walk that day and suitable for those with moderate hillwalking experience. Teh A walk is self-navigating and takes in Maamtrasna and the Devil’s Mother.
