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 1121th highest place in Ireland.

Well now an unusual name for a small hill. The biggest difficulty here is dodging the Rottweiler in the house next to the wood entrance at S48150 28150 A. Walk uphill following the track until it ends, look left, see a gap in the trees and follow the rough, thorny track uphill until you can walk through a gap in the ditch into a field.Turn right and walk up to the right angle corner of the field. Hop the wire and walk uphill into the forest for couple of minutes to the lonely pillar. Incidentally at the risk of being simplistic there is quite a bit of gorse on the hill, and lots of dead gorse bushes under the forest canopy suggesting it was more widespread before Coillte arrived!
