The English name, Knocknagussy, appears to be an anglicisation of a different Irish name from the one recorded by Tim Robinson on his map of Connemara: Binn Dhubh. 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].   Knocknagussy is the 711th highest place in Ireland. Knocknagussy is the most southerly summit in the Partry/Joyce Country area.

Steep slog!
by paddyhillsbagger  14 Jun 2015
Found a small lay-by on the R345 at L97661 52269 A. 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: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/600/comment/18120/
