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 81st highest place in Ireland. Broaghnabinnia is the most northerly summit in the Dunkerron Mountains area.

No access to Lough Reagh
by odonogc  18 Sep 2020
We went to the Black Valley today (17/09/2020) to hike in via Lough Reagh, but there are new signs on the gate saying "Private Property, Keep Out".

We weren't able to poke out an alternative way to access the lake so we climbed from the west instead, via the Kerry Way.

Just be aware of this if you're planning to tackle the hills on the southern side of the Black Valley. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/20890/
