This peak is unnamed on the OSI Discovery map, surely one of the highest peaks to lack a name. The name Corranabinnnia is found in walking guides. It is also named Cushcamcarragh (from Ir. Coiscéim Charrach, 'rocky step') in atlases. This name also appears on Bald's map of Mayo (1830), while the name Curranabinna is applied to the cirque north of the peak. Walks: for a route taking in Bengorm, Corranabinnia and Glennamong, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 72-73.   Corranabinnia is the second highest mountain in the Nephin Begs area and the 101st highest in Ireland.
