There are several hills of this name, one further west in Mayo, one in Fermanagh (anglicised Trustia) and one near Mullaghmast in Co. Kildare (Trustiu in the Metrical Dindshenchas). Why these hills have a name meaning 'tripod' is unclear, but some at least appear to have had a ritual significance. There are traditions connected with Tristia in Mayo which preserve elements of the pagan festival of Lughnasa. As well as climbing the hill, it was tradition to visit St. Patrick's Well and the Blessed Virgin's Well at its foot. These wells were reputed to offer cures for eye ailments and for jealousy [MacNeill, 106-07].   Tristia is the 1107th highest place in Ireland. Tristia is the most northerly summit and also the second most westerly in the East Mayo area.

Steep climb up forest
by Fergalh  9 Jan 2023
Back in 2014 I followed Shaun Kelly's excellent route description. A steep climb following a rough deteriorating fence line followed until the summit was achieved. This is marked by a pile of rocks great views in all directions, especially towards Nephin. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/929/comment/23792/
