A large group of rocks on the east side of Bellavally Gap are known as the Black Rocks or Maguire's Chair. This was the site of an assembly on 'Donagh Sunday', the last Sunday in July (MacNeill, 175-77). According to Dalton, the name has led to an erroneous belief that this was the inauguration site of the Maguires, and this is confirmed by MacNeill.   Benbrack is the 564th highest place in Ireland. Benbrack is the third highest point in county Cavan.

Enormous landslide at summit - Avoid
by TommyMc  22 Jul 2021
The Anglo Celt newspaper has reported an "enormous" landslide earlier this month on the summit plateau of Benbrack. There are said to be deep crevices on either side of the affected area and the ground is described as "very unstable" and should be avoided.
