The Ordnance Survey Name Book gives Leitir Cos as the derivation of this name, which it interprets as 'spewy hillside of the foot'. Leitir Cos appears to be an error for Leitir Cois.   Knocklettercuss is the 1013th highest place in Ireland.

Set out to reach the summit of Knocklettercuss using the Bangor Trail out of Bangor. The trail begins at F 86569 22670 A. Parking available beside the GAA pitches. At F 86610 20820 B I left the trail and started up the heather slopes. At sharp climb from 140m to 340m at F 87106 20524 C, but then fairly flat up to the summit at F 87595 19817 D. Good views to south of Nephin Beg range, and out to west of Achill. I returned back using same route. About 7.3km in total, 2 1/4 hours. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/878/comment/3780/
