Mulmosog, alias Altnagapple, is a townland in Inishkeel parish, barony of Banagh. The element mosóg 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.'”   Mulmosog Mountain is the 1052th highest place in Ireland. Mulmosog Mountain 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 A 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.
