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 346th highest place in Ireland.

Access Issue
by Frank12345  6 Feb 2012
Just south of the summit there are two bright red warning signs 'No unauthorised access beyond this point'. They are attached to the boundary fence that runs along the ridge,and they are confusingly situated near the boundary to dissuade any walking,although technically they only refer to a short strect of commonage that runs down to the glenteige,east side of the ridge.
