This peak is unnamed on OS maps, but is called Maul Laur on Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830). This is probably an anglicisation of Ir. Meall Láir, 'middle lump', indicating its position half-way beween Ben Creggan and Ben Gorm.   Ben Creggan South Top is the third highest mountain in the Ben Gorm Mountains area and the 133rd highest in Ireland.

Ben Creggan South Top is in the middle of a fantastic horseshoe walk taking in all three tops of the Ben Gorm mountains and two of its impressive ridges (see Ben Gorm for first part and Ben Creggan for final part). The three tops are all roughly the same height with only slight drops in between of approx. 100m, the real work being the initial climb. On its western side there are steep slopes dropping down towards Finn and Doo Loughs backed by Mweelrea and to the east yet more steep drops into the the cauldron nearly enclosed by the horseshoe of this walk. Fron Ben Gorm drop down NW passing a cairn on the way to the col. There are some very impressive views here down along the length of Doo Lough and out to sea. Ascend over firm ground passing some rocky outcrops and after 25 minutes reach the summit cairn. Unfortunately again there was mist on the top and only glimpses of the possible views were available to me. From here it is a drop down in a N direction to the col with Ben creggan itself. The first part of the descent is over steep and rocky ground and several small drops bring you quickly to the col. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/128/comment/1288/
