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.'”   Maol Mosóg is the 1048th highest place in Ireland. Maol Mosóg is the most easterly summit in the Donegal SW area.

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 B) 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.
