Notes on name: The English name, Knocknagussy, appears to be an anglicisation of a different Irish name from that recorded by Tim Robinson on his map of Connemara: Binn Dhubh, 'black peak'; and also from that recorded at logainm.ie: Cnoc an Mháma. Knocknagussy suggests Cnoc na Giúise, 'hill of the pine tree', or Cnoc na Giúsaí, giúsach being a collective noun. In Connemara it can refer to pine found in the bog or bog-deal (giús portaigh) [Dinneen].

Wall of Death
by Geansai 24 Mar 2012
There's a great view of Maumeen Pass and Lough Corrib looking southwest and southeast but move away from the cairn a few yards down to the north and there's a great view into this valley. Thats snowy Maumtrasna peeking over the far ridge. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/600/comment/6729/

This is a view of Knocknagussy from Mount Gable to the east. Behind the summit in this view is the Maamturks ridge, with Binn Mhairg just to the right of the top of the highest point of Knocknagussy. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/600/comment/23522/

Steep slog!
by paddyhillsbagger 26 Sep 2022
Found a small lay-by on the R345 at Móinín (L97931 52207). Crossed some boggy ground and headed roughly North up a very steep slope to the top. There was a small cairn next to a fence which straddled the summit. Lovely views. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/600/comment/18120/
