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 1333th highest place in Ireland. Carnmoney Hill is the second most northerly summit in the Belfast Hills area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1246/
