The first element in the name Carnmoney is clearly Ir. carn, ‘cairn’, but the second element is less certain. Patrick McKay interprets it as monadh, ‘mountain’, which fits the landscape. However, whilst monadh is common in Scottish place-names, it is rare in Ireland. Other possibilities include muine, ‘thicket’, and mónadh, ‘bog’. The form Cnoc Charn Monaidh is offered here as a reconstruction.   Carnmoney Hill is the 1331th highest place in Ireland.

Pleasant Walk, Spoiled A Little By Heavy Rain
by Aidy  26 Mar 2014
It was a beautiful day in Belfast where I had travelled for work, and as I didn't have boots or any other gear I thought I would have a look a this small hill, having recently seen it on one of gerrym's excellent videos. I started from Knockenagh Avenue and simply followed the blue waymarked trail through the pleasant woodland, until I emerged on to open fields. There is a good guide to the walk on Walkni.com, with downloadable maps and leaflets, but it does give the impression that the hilltop walk will take you over the summit, which is not the case. When you leave the trees on higher ground, you need to leave the trail, and cross the fields to the now clearly visible summit. Its a nice walk through the woods, and the views are good, although those from nearby Cave Hill are probably better if you only have time for one or the other. Unfortunately for me, as I got near the top, clouds drew in and it began to rain heavily, so I couldn't even take the camera out until I reached the foot of the hill again.
