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 third highest mountain in the North Mayo area and the 101st highest in Ireland.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Corranabinnia in area North Mayo, Ireland

North and west of Corranabinnia stretches a large plain of bogland with few roads or much cultivation, apart from some modern forestry. Apparently it wasn’t always so. Frank Mitchell [The Book of the Irish Countryside] says “… 1000 years before the birth of Christ, the north Mayo landscape was fantastically different to what it is today. Instead of an abandoned wasteland of bog, we would have seen great expanses of farmland being cultivated with spades …”

North of Corranabinnia is the remote double lake of Corryloughaphuill Lough with the great bog stretching up to it. Together these are an extensive body of water around 1100m long. The picture concentrates on the division between the two lakes (which are 3m different in height, according to the OS). Did ancient peoples use this lakeside?
