This peak overlooks Ballaghisheen (Ir. Bealach Oisín). The anglicisation Knocknacusha seems unrelated to Cnoc Osaidh and suggests an Irish form Cnoc na Coise.   Knocknacusha is the 426th highest place in Ireland.

Access issue
by thomas_g  30 Jul 2017
There is now a no trespassing sign on the gate at approx V701782 A, I believe (unconfirmed) that it was put there by the new owner of the house at V694 778 B. This effectively rules out access via the track on the west side of the lake. One possibility is to climb up to SH 261m and go along the ridge, this does however lengthen the approach fairly significantly. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/364/comment/19617/
