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.

Short Summary created by markmjcampion, simon3, Colin Murphy, jackill  7 Mar 2021
Mullaghanish is a boggy, wet, flat topped hill on the Cork/Kerry border. Its summit is home to a huge TV mast and associated infrastructure. While it may be a nondescript summit, it is a fine vantage point with views across to The Paps, Caherbarnagh and Crohane.

S. For an easy walk it is possible to park at W20455 79903 A, and climb via the RTE access road. This should take about 45 mins and involves nearly 400m ascent.

SE. Park at a forest access area W22369 80417 B, room for 10 cars. Cross the road and head north with the forest to your right and a fence to your left along a grassy boggy track. 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 is to retrace your steps. Allow 1hr+ to the summit.

Track/3788 is noteworthy and includes two satellite tops to the NE. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/199/comment/4959/
