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 120th highest in Ireland.

We parked at W14446 84029 in the Clydagh Valley and followed the ancient Duhallow trail towards Rathmore. As you walk up the trail you will see Pap East on the left handside in the distance(weather permitting!). An excellent guide to the walk can be found in Kevin Corcoran's book, 'Kerry Walks'. In previous comments a number of fellow walkers have taken the 'fire break' trail up Pap East but found it very slippery and muddy. We decided to take a track on the left hand side(after the 2nd gate) at W14304 85244, which proved to be an excellent way up the mountain. There is a heathery scramble to the summit(W13322 85540 D) after the trail peters out, but it is a fairly straightforward route which avoids the 'fire break'. From East Pap and its huge cairn, we walked to West Pap and then as pre-arranged, the clouds parted and we devoured a well deserved lunch, with superb views over Cork and Kerry!
