Muing is originally the dative form of mong (hair; figuratively: thick growth of grass, fen, morass, swamp), often used as the nominative. However, on the Discovery map this peak is named Meenteog. This could derive from Mínteog, meaning 'small area of pasture'. There is a townland near Barraduff called Meentoges, seemingly of the same origin.
Meenteog is the third highest mountain in the Glenbeigh Horseshoe area and the 102nd highest in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/99/
