This peak is on the county boundary between Cork and Kerry and on the northern edge of the Cúil Aodha Gaeltacht. 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.   Mullach an Ois is the 203rd highest place in Ireland.

An alternate route to the RTE access road: After turning off the N22, follow the small blue signs directing you to Mullaghanish. Drive about 2.5 km past the tower road, and park at a forest access area facing south (224 704 C, it doesn't look like it reaches the road, but it's there). Head north with the forest to your right and a fence to your left. There isn't a trail marked, but it's pretty easy going over slightly mucky grassland. Take this up to Carrigrathduff, then head straight for the peak over more heathery terrain. You will need to hop a fence or two. Heading for Mullaghanish, you'll run into a tall barbed wire fence. To avoid it, follow the fence NE for a couple of minutes, and a gate appears. You can go through here and get to the peak. The best way back down, unfortunately, is to retrace your steps. The aesthetic value of this mountain would be poor even if the transmitter wasn't there, but the views of the Paps and the surrounding valleys are great on a nice day.

The OSI map shows another trail heading north towards the top from the road at 221 707 D, but it's very muddy and is clearly a private road. I'd avoid it if possible. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/199/comment/1720/
