Bedrock type: Olivine basalt lava, (Upper Basalt Formation)

According to legend, Foibhne, son of Taircheltar, was slain here. Binevenagh is unmistakable with its impressive basalt cliffs, 1235 ft. high, and a lower series of broken crags resembling fangs. Since Foibhne is a rather shadowy figure of whom little is known beyond his association with Binevenagh, one might suspect that this character has been created specifically to explain the hill-name, and that something else underlies the second element. At present nothing very concrete can be proposed, but it is worth noting the similarity in pronunciation to the second element of Rinn Seimhne (Island Magee), Muirtheimhne, Eamhna, the genitive form of Eamhain (Mhacha) and Samhna, genitive of Samhain.   Binevenagh is the third highest hill in the Keenaght area and the 987th highest in Ireland. Binevenagh is the most northerly summit in the Keenaght area.
