Located in the townland of Knocknashee Common. Ir. sí can mean both 'fairy' and 'fairy mound'. It is usually masculine, and therefore this name appears to mean 'hill of the fairies'. However, since it can occasionally be feminine, the meaning 'hill of the fairy mound' cannot be ruled out.
Knocknashee is the 1211th highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/975/
