There is a townland named Baunreagh in the parish of Offerlane, located 4km to the W on the other side of The Cut. The name of this peak appears to consist of the same name with the addition of cúng, 'narrow'. The Irish form Bán Riabhach Conga is tentatively suggested at logainm.ie, but the basis for the final element conga is not clear. The River Barrow rises on the northern slopes of this hill and flows through Glenbarrow.
