Iconic mountain
You are thinking irish but what about the most iconic irish mountains perceived in the world ?
For example, french people know very well the name of Connemara because of a popular song from the french singer Michel Sardou (http://www.sardou.com/discographie/paroles/lacs-du.htm). Many french people who visited Ireland talk around them about Kerry and Connemara, few about the wild Donegal. But most of my compatriots don't know any summit irish name, except those climbed Croagh Patrick maybe.
As a member of MV, the most iconic irish mountain in my mind, is linked with a walk and the number one is... Poisoned Glen, a small valley ! If I make effort to choose a mountain, it would be probably Mullaghanattin (my best horseshoe walk until I will try one among Twelve Bens), but I cannot be so much affirmative as I did not climb enough irish summits.
But if I reffered to my own experience, Croagh Patrick is number one with 11th climbs (despite I am not a pilgrim).
Finally, my number one in irish charts is Mullaghanattin and my number one for international popular charts is Croagh Patrick.

Westaston Hill: The top?
Barry a day ago.
I think the highest point is likely about 175 metres in a WSW direction from the mast. I'm judging this from aerial photography and DTM which shows a rocky outcrop in a small forest clearing. DTM ...

Barranisky: Barniskea or Barniskey
Barry a day ago.
Might be worth adding that Ballymoyle Hill might be more appropriate name for this height. Called that in Coillte records. Whilst Barranisky is spelt thus on OS six inch maps, note that Hall Nevil...
