Ballinafunshoge (from Ir. Baile na Fuinseoige, 'townland of the ash') or Ashtown is the name of a townland, and it has clearly been erroneously applied to this hill. The peak was named Slieve Buck on maps of Wicklow made in 1760 and in 1822, but this name appears to have been forgotten since. In his 'Guide to the County of Wicklow' (1827) Wright gives its height as 1480 ft., which is a little low for this peak (1582 ft.), but corresponds to the height of Sleamaine, located about 1 mile further N. In any case, at this time such heights were estimated by enthusiasts and were often not very accurate.   Ballinafunshoge is the 623rd highest place in Ireland.

Nice approach along the track from Sleamaine
by Bunsen7  17 Jul 2017
Found this easy to bag using the tracks via Sleamaine marked on "east-west mapping" map, including the forest ride. Track uploaded for anyone with an interest but given recent tree felling on the east side, this track should be easy to identify from the east along the forst line running perpendicular to the wicklow way track. I ascended via the forest ride from the west, having enjoyed the view towards Luggala and Knocknacloghoge. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/516/comment/19605/
