Barranisky Hill Barr an Uisce A name in Irish, also Ballymoyle Hill an extra name in English (prob. Ir. Barr an Uisce [PDT], 'top of the water') Wicklow County in Leinster Province, in Binnion List, Felsic volcanics Bedrock

Longitude: -6.135721, Latitude: 52.847835 , Easting: 325652, Northing: 179028 Prominence: 165m,  Isolation: 7.8km,   Has trig pillar

Bedrock type: Felsic volcanics, (Ballymoyle Formation)

James Fraser refers in A Hand Book for Travellers in Ireland (1854) to: the hills of Collon and Barranisky, which rise respectively 782 and 789 feet above the sea. The height is incorrect for Barranisky, it being 923 feet high, but the geographical location is precise enough to be certain of the identification. Has been called Ballymoyle.   Barranisky is the 1206th highest place in Ireland.

Trig sneaks up on you
by mickhanney  23 Dec 2019
Having read previous people's comments, I went up this afternoon. Being very familiar with this local hill from running I got to the ruin without issue. Did a double-take at the so-called track that is discussed and shown on the latest East-West map. I found it almost totally overgrown from the get go. I didn't expect to have to battle from the start! After patches of struggling through thickets of gorse, there were clearer patches which allowed good walking albeit sometimes with a stoop. Some of the gorse branches were horizontal on the ground, perhaps dying off towards the winter season? Could see a single-track from time to time, perhaps from previous visitors travels. Stooping through forestry followed before I literally stumbled on the Trig, which was fairly overgrown. The forestry surrounding is mature so there is no view at all from the summit. On the way back I descended in the other direction along a wall which gave better access, sometimes having to walk backwards through gorse bushes!, but better than crawling!
