Ballinafunshoge (from Ir. Baile na Fuinseoige, 'townland of the ash') or Ashtown is the name of a townland, and it has clearly been erroneously applied to this hill. The peak was named Slieve Buck on maps of Wicklow made in 1760 and in 1822, but this name appears to have been forgotten since. In his 'Guide to the County of Wicklow' (1827) Wright gives its height as 1480 ft., which is a little low for this peak (1582 ft.), but corresponds to the height of Sleamaine, located about 1 mile further N. In any case, at this time such heights were estimated by enthusiasts and were often not very accurate.   Ballinafunshoge is the 624th highest summit in Ireland.

Easy approach using the Wicklow Way
Short Summary created by wicklore,  19 Sep 2010
One way to approach Ballinafunshoge is from the R759 which runs east from the Sally Gap to the Kilmacanoge - Roundwood road. The R759 passes above Lough Tay (the famous ‘Guinness Lake’ and is well worth a visit in its own right. The Wicklow Way cuts cross the R759 and enters a forest track at O173 063 A. Follow the Wicklow Way along the forest track for about 2 kms, walking very close to the summit of Sleamaine along the way. At approx O 168 039 B out for a forest ride running west through the trees. Follow this track for about 400 metres to the summit. Views are restricted here due to the trees, but there are nice views from the Wicklow Way track of the Roundwood Lakes. If coming from the R759 take the time to stop at the viewpoint at O169 071 C for the amazing views over the Wicklow hills. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/516/comment/5275/
