Mordán is a wizard connected in folklore with this hill [TR]. The name is very suggestive of the Welsh Merddyn (Merlin). Walks: for a route around Binn Bhuí, S of Cnoc Mordáin, see Walking in Connemara, 3.2. For a walk along the ridge (named Derryrush to Kilkieran, rather than Cnoc Mordáin), see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 28-29.   Cnoc Mordáin is the second highest hill in the South Connemara area and the 1044th highest in Ireland.

The view south and east from the steep side of the summit showing the sea at Kilkieran Bay and Lettermore Island, offshore right of picture. The granite of the slope is in giant broken ridges such as the one nearby. Unusually the flattish land between the summit and the sea also has rock ridges. The blue water, right inland, is a sea inlet. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/897/comment/3867/
