This peak is moderate in stature but has quite a pointed top. It gives its name to the Slieve Miskish range but is not the highest peak within it (Knockoura, 490m). The meaning of the name is obscure, but given the sharp profile, a connection with miosgán, ‘haystack’, is possible (see Benwiskin and Slievenamiskan).
Miskish Mountain is the second highest hill in the Slieve Miskish area and the 984th highest in Ireland. Miskish Mountain is the most northerly summit and also the most easterly in the Slieve Miskish area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/857/
