The Dictionary of Celtic Mythology gives the full name as Dá Chích Anann, 'the two breasts of Anu'. This goddess was reputedly responsible for the fertility of the whole province of Munster. A line of stones, known as na Fiacla, connects the two tops and is believed to have formed a processional route.   The Paps East is the highest mountain in the Paps/Derrynasaggart area and the 117th highest in Ireland.

East and West Paps
by oldboots  22 Sep 2014
Climbed both Paps today, ascended East Pap first from green road just beyond north end of lake where it meets Duhallow way. Found it hard going on lower heather covered slope, but stuck with it and going got easier on upper slope.
After a brief stop on summit, descended via a reasonably well defined track to col and up to summit of West Pap. About 30 minutes summit to summit and relatively easy ascent. Absolutely stunning views from both summits and indeed from anywhere in the area on a fine day. Wanting to avoid a return on heather slope, decided to descend from West Pap via a very well defined path to south, on easy, but slightly boggy slope. Followed track along wire fence until fence turns 90 degrees to west. Headed straight on in southerly direction where slope is quite steep to join old stone road. Followed this briefly to west before crossing fence, joining new forestry road where very recent felling has taken place, and down to meet Clydagh valley road. Turned left here to bring me back to car at southern end of green road. Very enjoyable walk in fine weather, 5 hours total at an easy pace.
