Corr na Móna is the only official name. The anglicized spelling Cornamona has no official status.

Corr na Móna (anglicized as Cornamona)[1] is a village and townland in County Galway, Ireland. It is part of the Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking region) of North Connemara.

The village lies on the north of Lough Corrib in the middle of the Joyce Country Mountain and Lake Districts. It is a popular site among trout and salmon anglers.[2] and is one of the most scenic areas of Ireland.

The eastern edge of the area comes down to the shores of the Corrib while the western edge borders the scenic upland area of An Mám. The well known Teachta Dála Éamon Ó Cuív lives in Cornamona and is currently Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.

The local secondary school is Gairmscoil Fhecicin Naofa, Corr na Móna.
