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.

Took a walk up the access road to the summit of Mullagnahish with the young'uns while on holidays last week. The mountain (or a route of some sort) is signposted from Ballyvourney (take the road on the Killarney end of the village) but isn't signposted from then on so follow the cycle-route signs and you'll find the way. Grand walk from the locked gate but unfortunately the summit is literally a hard-hat area as it's currently a pretty messy-looking building site. Good views across to the Paps on the ascent but unfortunately by the time we had reached the top, a thick mist had come across. Not much to recommend but one of the easier 'Dillon' summits.
