Referred to as Sliabh cCarbatach in the Annals of the Four Masters (entry for 1567 AD). The element carbad/carb is found in a number of Irish place-names. Although carpat can mean a chariot in Old Irish, many of the places in question have boulders and this seems more likely to be the sense of such place-names in mountain areas.   Mullaghcarbatagh is the 512th highest place in Ireland.

Unusually Rocky Sperrin
Short Summary created by Aidy,  4 Apr 2014
Situated north of the scenic Glenelly Valley, Mullaghcarbatagh is the most westerly in a line of mountains which proceeds through Mullaghclogha and Sawel, the two highest peaks in the Sperrins. It can be used as a starting point for a walk taking in all or some of those summits. If doing the walk in the other direction, it is easily accessed from Mullaclogher to the east. It is worth doing in its own right however, offering a different character to much of the Sperrins, with its rocky top. If ascending as a solo summit, or the start of a longer walk, it can be accessed by one of many minor roads leading north from the Glenelly Valley, particularly the Castledamph Road. Access is also possible from the Bradkeel or Lisnaragh Roads to the west. From the north, access from the Carricayne Road. The mountains is orientated Northwest to Southeast, with the summit on the southern end, topped by a fine cairn. The northwestern end has a slightly lower summit, with its own, also impressive cairn.
