Canon Power gave the two alternative translations, so he was clearly unaware of any story which would resolve the mystery. There is a small cairn at the summit, which could be the remains of the monument in question.   Laghtnafrankee is the 505th highest place in Ireland.

I parked close by the spot suggested by jackill and marched up to the summit. The views are as excellent as promised, as evidenced by my picure showing the view over to the Knocksheegowna - Knockanaffrin ridge. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/411/comment/3187/
