There is a signal tower at the highest point on Dursey in the townland of Tilickafinna. It seems likely that this hill was called Cnoc Bólais, since Penelope Durell records this name in Discovering Dursey with the meaning 'beacon hill'. Although the translation seems incorrect (bólas is probably related to dairying, from bó, 'cow'), this clearly links the name with the signal tower. A cliff nearby to the north called Foilbolus supports this.   Cnoc Bólais is the 1274th highest place in Ireland. Cnoc Bólais is the most southerly summit and also the most westerly in the Slieve Miskish area.

Where does the Cable Guy go?
by three5four0  11 Aug 2010
Took the Cable Car out to Dursey Island, for a quick cicuit of the Beara Way and a visit to the summit of Cnoc Blais. Follow the Berra Way markers out and the road back.

Interestingly, the Cable Car does not run between 10.30 am and 2.30 pm & again between 4.30 pm and 7.00 pm. This caused much confusion to the hoards of tourists, who were awaiting on the Cable Car arriving back at the Ballaghboy side, whilst my wife and i sat munching some Green & Blacks chocolate, in the cable car on the Dursey side. And no, it was not Jim Carrey when he arrived! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1001/comment/6002/
