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.

Fancy a quick one?
Short Summary created by jackill,  21 Jan 2013
Park on the the roadside around S251 187 A, just before a cattle grid.There is lots of room to do so.
Head west towards the mountain first on a muddy farm track and then up a small rise and across gently sloped, heather-covered, featureless ground to the summit.
Grand views of Slievenamon and the stretch of the Comeragh Plateau on a good day, a test of navigation on a bad one. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/411/comment/5170/
