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.

Via Knocknaman
by FiachDubh  23 Feb 2011
Climbed Meenteog as part of a circuit of Coomsaharn Lake. Parked at an old house ruin (V63687 85201 B) at roadside and followed a farm track through a small gate to climb the steep, craggy slopes of Knocknaman and then up the squelchy ridge. Great views of the steep back wall of the corrie of Coomeneragh Lake were promised as we approached the summit only to be hidden by the sudden arrival of mist, though that did not last long.
The photo taken on Coomacarrea, looking back to Meenteog, shows Coomasaharn Lake nestling below the Knocknaman ridge, with the Reeks in the distance. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/99/comment/6251/
