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 214th highest place in Ireland.

Yes it's the obvious gully. It's a real scramble. You can stay in the gully for first 1/3, here you'll meet a very slippery rockface. I went south from gully to get around this. Up higher, I crossed the gully to the north after I got stuck. I was on my own, but if you would go with more people and ropes, you be able to complete the climb. Good luck!!
