Dinneen gives a longer, more poetic name for this mountain: Muisire na Móna Móire, 'Muisire of the great bog'. Móin Mhór was the old name for a chain of hills including the Boggeragh Mountains and Nagles Mountains. The element muisire does not appear elsewhere in Irish place-names. Judging by the late 16th century forms from maps, e.g. Knock Muskery, it appears to be connected with the Múscraige, who gave their name to the barony of Muskerry. It is on the NE edge of the ancient territory of this people. Mushera has two holy wells: one at the summit for sick animals and one on its northern slopes [St. John's Well] for humans, at which mass is celebrated at midsumer (Daphne Pochin Mould, 'Discovering Cork', p.22).   Musheramore is the highest mountain in the Boggeragh Mountains area and the 209th highest in Ireland. Musheramore is the second most westerly summit in the Boggeragh Mountains area.

Mushermore is easily climbed from the car park at W320 856. Toddle on down the road for 200 meters or so towards Musherabeg and you'll meet a track turning into the woods on your left.. Follow this track
through the trees gaining height all the time. The track joins the Duhallow way after a bit and you can follow this on a fairly good track around to Mushera where it ends.There's nothing for it but to head out across the mountain making a direct line for the summit. Its fairly easy going all the way in a series of long steps. About 400 meters from the summit a series of bogholes block your path, go around them rather than through or you will get very damp feet. The summit is marked by a large beehive of a cairn(which seems to be the highest point), a trig pillar and a few crosses made from sticks.The most direct descent is towards Millstreet Forest park and then back along the road to the car park. Looking at the map near Musheramore you will see "Kerrymans Table crossroads".The Kerrymans table is a large flat rock where people rested and goods were collected situated on the Old Butter Road which was constructed in 1747.It is four miles from Millstreet on the road to Rylane exactly mid-way between Killarney and Cork City, 25 miles on either side. It is also about 25 miles from Castleisland, a significant market town for the farmers of Kerry in past times. If you were to look at a map you will notice that Castleisland, Millstreet and the top of Blarney Street in Cork city where the Butter Market was situated, form a straight line "as the crow flies." This photo shows the trig pillar on Musheramore looking across at Mullaghanish, Knocknagowan, and Caherbarnagh with the Paps behind. Where the steep face of Cahernarnagh drops down to meet the plain below marks the edge of a large fault line that runs from Mallow to Killarney, though it is difficult to see as much of it was covered by glacial deposits in the last ice age.
