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].
Cnoc an Mháma is the 713th highest place in Ireland. Cnoc an Mháma is the most southerly summit in the Partry/Joyce Country area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/600/
