View south to Arklow and distant Tara Hill from Barranisky (Expand pics)
Name of Barranisky Hill
Context of comment:There are two parts to the upland known as Barranisky, which is split by minor roads. The prominence to the northwest of the road is named as Barranisky West on the OS map. The prominence to the southeast of the road is named as Barranisky East on the OS map. The main summit is on the prominence called Barrinisky East. But on MV the highest point is named simply as ‘Barranisky’. This means that Barranisky East (with the Eircom masts) is to the west of Barranisky.
Message:I wonder should the highest point be named as ‘Barranisky East’ on MV? This name would incorporate both the main summit and the smaller prominence with the masts. If Barranisky retains its current name, we will continue to have the anomaly of a Barranisky East to its west!
Additional points:If I can help with anything I will.

Barranisky: Barniskea or Barniskey

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...

Westaston Hill: The top?

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 ...
