The summit cairn is indicated as an antiquity on the Discovery map but the summit itself is nameless. The name Carnavaddy is given on the Táin Way map guide. Carrickrawor (An Chreig Ramhar [LL]), Slievetrasna, Slievestucan and the Castle are marked as satellite peaks or slopes of this mountain. Corrakit (Corr an Chait) is a townland to the east, on the north side of the Windy Gap. [OSI]   Carnavaddy is the 643rd highest place in Ireland.

I know this mountain as Carnawaddy, and as far as I know, that is what it is known locally as.
Perhaps that is the name of the big cairn at the summit, 'Carn a mhadra', which is the reputed burial place of Cuchulain's dog Bran.
There are some great rock features to the south and east of the summit, including a particularly interesting chasm as you go down towards the Windy Gap. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/531/comment/2840/
