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 1209th highest summit 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/

Trig support required!
by eamonoc  16 Oct 2014
Climbed on 15/10/2014. Started at G 56332 18935 D, parked on roadside verge beside some old farm bulidings. Following directions of a Sligo Spur Walks, well made route card was able to ascend easily through two fields to the summit plateau and find Trig point beside megalithic tomb. Poor old trig was lying on it`s side having obviously toppled from burial mound. As this is not the first trig I have discovered in this state of despair, maybe the formation of a Trig Support group would be in order! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/975/comment/17729/

Knocknashee has a pleasing aspect on the small road into Lavagh where I parked at 550 185 E and followed a fence up the spine of the hill to a flat plateau above. The trig cairn which looks like it has been plonked on a collapsed Megalithic cairn is at the Northern end of the hill so a short walk admiring the fine views of the nearby Ox Mountain range, scaring the resident sheep and enjoying the croaks of a pair of Raven got me there in no time at all. Looking roughly East the bulk of Kesh and it's prominent cairn is clearly visible, pity I missed viewing Knocknashee from there in my cloud covered ascent last month!

Western Face conqured: July 2000.
by daveespene  6 Mar 2014
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/
