Dooish overlooks Lough Beagh and the Glenveagh National Park. Divis Mountain, overlooking Belfast, shows a different anglicisation of the same name. It is also possible that Dubhais is itself a re-interpretation of an earlier name, especially as other colours do not appear to combine with ais in hill -names. Something akin to Welsh diffwys meaning ‘steep slope’ or ‘desolate area’ would seem apt both for Divis in the Belfast Hills and to Dooish in Glenveagh.   An Dubhais is the 195th highest place in Ireland.

Donegal Panorama
by Colin Murphy  4 May 2011
The third and final stop in a three top walk (see entry for Sagartnadooish for route) and probably the best in terms of view, aesthetic etc. Although rather hazy the day we did it, we still enjoyed a panorama of Errigal and the Aghlas to the north and clear across Glenveagh to the south. Pic show summit cairn with Errigal visible through the haze. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/187/comment/6339/
