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 1097th highest summit in Ireland.

New Comment: "Hill of the Fairies"
by Jamessheerin  5 May 2017
This hill is known locally as "The Hill of the Fairies". So, perhaps its those little folk who are responsible for the Trig toppling? Great views from on top.. well worth the ramble up if passing by. What better way to break a long journey! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/975/comment/18911/
