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.   Mullaghanish is the 201st highest place in Ireland.

paulocon on Mullach an Ois, 2009
by paulocon  29 Aug 2009
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.
