The summit of Mouldy Hill is located in the townland of Roosky in the parish of Fahan Upper. The name Mouldy Hill may be a corruption of Ir. mullach, “summit”, usually anglicised as mullagh, mully or molly, cf. Mully Hill / Cnoc na Mullcha in SW Donegal. Another way of looking this is that the English name is suggestive of Old English molda ‘top of the head’, which is close to the sense of Ir. mullach. In fact, it is even possible that Ir. mullach, which lacks Brittonic cognates, suggesting it may not be originally Celtic, is actually a borrowing from English or from earlier Germanic, cf. Old Frisian meldke.   Mouldy Hill is the 1126th highest place in Ireland.

Asses prosecuted?

Climbed Mouldy Hill from the beach carpark at C345302 A and followed gerrym's route described below. Fine views abound from the summit cairn, but with an approaching down pour, we made a swift turn around and descended by the way of ascent. After climbing over the gate, again, on the track at C360296 K, I noticed the sign attached to it. The sign has had it's lettering picked off in the 'Fawlty Towers' style, revealing that asses will be prosecuted!

The Cyclists Rest bar, on the road to Burnfoot, serves a good pint of Guinness, which I drank several of whilst watching German run rampant over Argentina. Worth a visit for that post hill pint. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/944/comment/5919/
