Joyce suggests that the peak (binn) in question is Galtymore, which seems logical. Glencushabinnia is a townland north-east of here.   Slievecushnabinnia is the 59th highest place in Ireland.

Wheres the summit?
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman, jackill,  26 Mar 2015
You will probably come to this mountain after parking at Clydagh Bridge R87450 27780 A. From Clydagh the traditional route is a magnificent circuit taking Cush, Galtybeg and Galtymore with Cushnabinnia included as the last summit. This is however a fair test of stamina so be prepared. Also be aware the summit is not the spot height marked on the OS map. It is in fact a large cairn further west. For a more direct approach follow the way marked trail for L. Curra for some 3km through the forest to where it leads out to open moorland.. Go W up hill to a small but prominent Ring Fort R868259 B.Leave the way marked trail at this point and go SW up the broad spur of Knocknanuss, passing a large cairn en route. Continue up over Pt 766 to meet the wall marking the County boundary. Turn right and go out W across flat boggy ground to gain the high point within a 770m contour at R8576624002 C.
