The form Cruach Mhín an Fheannta from logainm.ie is supported by James O’Kane (Séamas Ó Catháin), who interprets it as 'the stack of the high field of the flaying' in his place-name survey of the parishes of Inishkeel and Kilteevoge. The Discovery map has a slightly different version: Cruach Mhín an Neanta, apparently 'the stack of the high field of the nettles'.   Cruach Mhín an Fheannta is the 638th highest place in Ireland.

End of the day job

Having recently walked the main Bluestacks ridge, starting at a point noted by others, I found myself with enough time to pick off CMN as well. Walked up Sli na Finne from the Reelan Valley, well marked but boggy long distance path to the west of the top, then picked up the ridge. Had to (carefully) cross one post and wire fence but that was the only obstacle.
The summit offered a good panorama of the main ridge climbed earlier in the day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/528/comment/4726/
