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.

No electric fences please
by eamonoc  30 Oct 2017
Went to Knockenagh Avenue to climb Carnmoney Hill, followed blue route uphill to open fields as mentioned by Aidy, was approx 400m from top which was clearly in view but many newly constructed barbed wire fences plus fairly substantial electric fences barred the way, went back dowwnhill drove around to Carmoney village an on towards Ballyduff Industrial estate. Drove up a very narrow road towards a private house at J 33374 83752 A. Parking for one car here and used Mast access road to get close to top, a small gap in a fence had to be climbed and a walk across a small boggy dip to gain the top where there is a Trig point. Good views towards Cave Hill and out over Belfast Lough from top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1246/comment/19775/
