In the OS Name Book John O'Donavan suggests the derivation Cnoc Lomannach [JOD], 'hill of the pinnacle'. This would account for the anglicised form Knocklomena. There seems to be some confusion between Ir. meannán, 'a kid goat' and mionnán, 'a pinnacle'.   Knocklomena is the 216th highest place in Ireland.

Sbender, read your peice on Knocklomena, just a question about that gully you mentioned. Is it it is the obvious one in the photo? you made it to 3/4 height, was it a scramble to this point and what was it like after? I am a bit of a gullyophile you see and I have noticed this route before. Would like to visit it this summer. Any more info on it?
