Mulmosog, alias Altnagapple, is a townland in Inishkeel parish, barony of Banagh. Mosóg is a dialect word for a berry, probably referring to bilberries in this case. The word also occurs in Mullaghmossog Glebe, a townland in Clonfeacle parish, Co. Tyrone. Kay Muhr explains mosóg as a variant of maosóg, derived from maoth, 'moist, soft.'” It probably refers to the juiciness of the berries.   Maol Mosóg is the 1055th highest place in Ireland. Maol Mosóg is the most easterly summit in the Donegal SW area.

Views from Mulmosog
Short Summary created by paddyhillsbagger  8 Aug 2010
There is an access road at G758 868 starA to the communication tower near the top of Mulmosog. From the tower its a short bog trot across open moor roughly SW to the actual top where fine views are had of the flanks of Common Mtn, Killybegs and Ballinreavy Strand. I couldn't find any defining features at the top apart from some fencing and the corner of a nearby forest as well as a small hut off on a spur. The views make this small top worthwhile.

The relative comfort of tarmac...
by Peter Walker  20 Jun 2011
Yes, there is an access road to the comms tower just below the summit of Mulmosog, but there is also a path marked on the map starting at (757 862 starB) aiming for the same destination, and it was this route I selected. Things started promisingly, but said path soon petered out amongst some fresh peat cuttings and linking with the access road by traversing across the hillside was an annoying shlep through the expected trackless, tufty and boggy grass, with a deep ditch and uncomfortably substantial (I'm 6'3 and I found it awkward) barbed wire fence providing the access road with a final defence. The summit has some mini comms equipment of its own (and very pleasing views as noted by Mr Hillsbagger), but I'm not too proud to say I used the access road rather than my route of ascent for the return.
