Also known as Cnoc Bhaile Uí Shé [OSI], 'hill of Baile Uí Shé', from Ballyhea(-bought) townland. The English form Ballysitteragh could be from Baile Suiteoireach, 'the townland of the camp/barracks', but the circumstances of its naming are unclear. Coumhenry, Coumgraig and Coumthrive are hollows below the mountain on the N. side. Previously Ballysitteragh in MV.   An Scraig is the 250th highest place in Ireland.

Plan A was Brandon, but a better forecast for the following day ruled that out; plan B was Stradbally and Beenoskee, but a long look at the clouds building on their slopes resulted in a drive back to Dingle for plan C, a lower level walk to Ballysitteragh. A very pleasant stroll from the Fire Station at the west end of Dingle along a green road brought us well up the shoulder. A rather boggy trek over to the summit was rewarded by great views of Gearhane and the Brandon Ridge to the north, Dingle and the Iveragh peninsula to the south and Benoskee in sunshine to the north west. We continued over to Beennabrack and the Connor Pass before walking back to the town on the old road that follows the Garfinny River before it becomes part of the Dingle Way. About four and a half hours for the round trip and yes, of course the following day's weather wasn't nearly as good! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/238/comment/2641/
