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 1212th highest place in Ireland.

More to this hill than its views
by three5four0  15 Jul 2010
There is plenty of parking at G5474319300 A, beside a hall / old school. Walked back through the road junction (G5475619190 B) and continued along the road opposite till G5506818300 C, where there are 2 gates. Go through the left one, then another, which has the standard disclaimer sign attached to the wall beside it, and walk up hill through the fields. After stepping over a couple of fences you reach the summit area and after a short walk reach the trig point and burial cairn.

Whilst the Ox Mountains may hold the view, the outlines of other cairns, enclosures etc litter the summit area and are worth seeking out. We returned the way of our ascent Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/975/comment/5948/
