The first element of this name is clearly Ir. taobh, 'side'. The second element appears to be an adjective meaning 'beating' or 'striking', although this structure is slightly unusual. This name would be very apt as Tievebulliagh is the site of a Neolithic axe factory. Axes were made from a rare stone called porcellanite which outcrops only here on Tievebulliagh and at Brockley on Rathlin Island. They were an important item of exchange and were exported all over Ireland. Many also reached Britain by trade. For origin of name, see The Archaeology of Ulster by Mallory and McNeill, pp. 44-6. However, whether knowledge of the purpose of the axe factory continued in local folklore from the Neolithic to the modern day is open to some doubt. It is possible that the second word may rather be Ir. búilleach, 'heavy, soggy ground; clods' in the genitive plural, giving an alternative interpretation: '(mountain)side of the clods/heavy ground'.   Tievebulliagh is the 930th highest summit in Ireland.

Tievebulliagh is an exceptional hill from any angle. The best route I would advise is to include it in my walk (see Slievanorra for the route). To do this, when you get to Trostan's summit simply look towards Tievebulliagh and follow the fence from Trostan to Tievebulliagh's western side then head straight for the top. The ground between the two is very boggy, tussocky and uncomfortable but it is worth it. When you have rested sufficiently on the summit just follow the fence back to Trostan to continue with my route. All in all an exceptional walk and a great day out!
