Ir. os is a literary word for deer. The name Oisín means 'little deer', 'fawn', as Oisín's mother Sadhbh (Sive) came to Fionn in the form of a doe. There is another Mullach an Ois (anglicised Mullaghanuish) in the Mullaghareirk Mountains.   Mullaghanish is the 202nd highest place in Ireland.

You can climb this mountain on the road that leads up to the RTE transmitter on the summit. The mountain is big and round and I don't know of any good reason for taking a different route. The summit route is found from a minor road that runs from Ballyvourney to the Macroom-Millstreet road at about 1400ft so the climb isn't too far. The view should be extensive on a good day. The summit stands on the Cork-Kerry border and looks down to the Blackwater, Clydagh and Lee valleys Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/199/comment/1406/
