Laghtshee is the name of a burial cairn near the eastern end of this hill. This name is misspelt Faghtshee on the Discovery map. A height near the western end is named Stookaniller. The true summit is unnamed on maps but is locally known as Curra Hill.   Curra Hill is the 1225th highest place in Ireland. Curra Hill is the second most northerly summit in the Glenbeigh Horseshoe area.

Fantastic walk, personally feel it's best starting your approach from Glenbeigh village and heading up through the forest (663 908 starA) as it's quite well signposted. Once leaving the cover of the trees, we were very open to the elements but continued upwards roughly following the trail. We then continued over the top of the mountain and descended to (638 898 starB). You can then turn right and walk down the cliff-side road to Rossbeigh Beach. Again, you are very open to the elements here and we were caught in a storm approaching from the Atlantic but it didn't take away from the enjoyment of the hike whatsoever. The views toward Seafin, the Reeks, Rossbeigh itself and the rest of Mid Kerry is breathtaking. A very underrated hike. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/980/comment/19610/
