Located in the townland of Knocknashee Common. Ir. sí can mean both 'fairy' and 'fairy mound'. It is usually masculine, and therefore this name appears to mean 'hill of the fairies'. However, since it can occasionally be feminine, the meaning 'hill of the fairy mound' cannot be ruled out.   Knocknashee is the 1208th highest summit in Ireland.

Western Face conqured: July 2000.

We Scaled the Western sheer face in July 2000, directly up to the Trig point area. And descending by sliding most of the way back down, ruined a new pair of jeans in the process, but great fun. Will be going back soon to activate it for(ham radio) Summits On The Air as EI0DB/P. But this time using the easy way in. (dja & pala) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/975/comment/15904/
