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 710th highest place in Ireland. Knocknagussy is the most southerly summit in the Partry/Joyce Country area.

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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/600/comment/6729/
