Located in the townland of Mullenbeg. Carricktriss Gorse is the highest point in the Walsh Mountains. It is unusual that the element Gorse has been added to this name, but the most likely explanation is the simple one: gorse is abundant on this hill and was probably even more abundant before conifers were planted here. In English place-names gorse is used not only of the plant itself but also of an area where it grows abundantly. It seems likely that Carricktriss Gorse is a rare Irish example of the same kind of place-name.
Carricktriss Gorse is the 1126th highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/941/
