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 1100th highest place in Ireland.

Trig support required!

Climbed on 15/10/2014. Started at G 56332 18935 D, parked on roadside verge beside some old farm bulidings. Following directions of a Sligo Spur Walks, well made route card was able to ascend easily through two fields to the summit plateau and find Trig point beside megalithic tomb. Poor old trig was lying on it`s side having obviously toppled from burial mound. As this is not the first trig I have discovered in this state of despair, maybe the formation of a Trig Support group would be in order! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/975/comment/17729/
