Untitled[edit]

The offical name of the village is Mosside, not Moss-Side!, pronouced as "Muh-side" instead of "Moss-Side". The name means litearly beside the peatland. The name Mosside reflects the village strong Ulster Scots culture and traditions, and this version of spelling used by Mosside Presbyterian Church which was founded in the village as early as 1794. There presently is not offical irish name for the village, thought a direct translation would be Cois na Móna meaning beside the peatland. Thought it could be argued that Mosside could derive from the Irish term Maigh Saighead, meaning plain of the arrows, pronouced as "May Seyd" which could have been changed over the years to "Moy Sayd", then to "Mos-id", leading it to be rendered as Mosside


This has been deem a possibly reason as north of Mosside is Moyarget/Maigh Airgid, to the east is Moycraig/Maigh Creige.
