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 121st highest in Ireland.

The City of Shrone
by patd  27 May 2011
Cathair Chrobhdhearg : (The City of Shrone) Rathmore: At the foot of the twin mountains “Da Chich Danann”. Historians agree this was one of the first location in Ireland to be populated, it was here on this elevated site that the Tuatha De Danann had their base naming the mountains “Da Chich Danann” (The breasts of Dana, but known locally as “The Paps”). It is one of the most ancient, historical and interesting religious sites in the entire western world which has continued its unbroken tradition of worship since its foundation as a Pagan site. A circular stone wall of 3 meters high encloses it. The Mayday festival is now a Christianised event of prayer and recital, with “cures” still taken from the City’s stones. Much of the original circular stone wall was destroyed by traders who used the stones to hold down their tents. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/116/comment/6361/
