A mountain in this vicinity named Mullaghnedryny is mentioned in the Civil Survey of 1654-56 as part of the boundary of the barony of Owney and Arra. It may be this peak or a lower shoulder to the west. The name seems to represent Ir. Mullach na Droighní, 'summit of the blackthorn'.   Silvermine Mountains W Top is the 600th highest place in Ireland.

200th Top
by paddyhillsbagger  8 May 2010
Silvermines Mtns W was the lucky 200th top for me! Climbed it on a gloriously sunny day after Moylussa circuit and Toutinna so was a little tired and sadly brought no champagne! Actually a lovely hill with splendid views all round. Starting point is Knocknaroe Forest Recreation Area R845 695 D and there are clear paths courtesy of Coillte. It's taken me over 3 yrs to get to this number having first started with Paddy Dillons book of 2'000ft tops and later branching out to county tops and local hills with MountainViews web site. It's been a very enjoyable journey so far and I'm only half way through the 2'000 footers as well as my local hills! Loads more still to do!
