Located in the townland of Mullenbeg. Carricktriss Gorse is the highest point in the Walsh Mountains. It is unclear why the element Gorse has been added to this name. The Ordnance Survey Letters for Kilkenny explain the name as Carrick-Trost (Carraig a Triost) from Carrick as above [a rock] and Troste a crack or fissure.
Carricktriss Gorse is the 1119th highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/941/
