There are several other place-names with Muiceanach (pig-like) in Connemara (e.g. Muiceanach Choille and Muiceanach Idir Dhá Sháile). This element is found mainly in Connacht and refers to a hill or ridge shaped like a pig's back. It is possible that Mucanacht is a variant of this. Previously Meachanach in MV.
