Ó Cíobháin gives Beann, 'peak', as the true name of this mountain. Apparently the name Bruach na Binne really belonged to a feature a few miles to the W overlooking the Bridia Valley and was mistakenly applied to this peak by the sappers.   Broaghnabinnia is the 83rd highest place in Ireland. Broaghnabinnia is the most northerly summit in the Dunkerron Mountains area.

"Easy" approach from the south
by Bunsen7  5 Jun 2018
I took the gruelling but safe approach to this summit from the south as part of an out and back detour from the circuit of the peaks around the Gearhameen valley. This involved a sustained pull up grassy heathery ground from around V805 808 starA.

My route was similar to track 3080.

Other approaches to the summit would appear to involve far more exposure, and rockier ground or gullies. The apparent route up the west ridge looks particularly exposed when viewed from the ridge north of Stumpa Duloigh. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/19939/
