Another possible interpretation is 'sedge of the hornless cow' as maol is feminine in this name. However, note that this peak is in the townland of Meoul, which actually suggests Ir. meall, 'lump', rather than maol.   Knockmeal is the 372nd highest place in Ireland.

Simple walk following the wall from Crohan West, even considering that I walked 25m to the east to avoid the erosion of the path near the wall. It gets steep on the last 150m up to the cairn, but then it flattens out considerably, and on a clear day you are rewarded with nice views of the higher peaks to the west. Not a nice place for lunch on a windy day, though, as the peak invites mighty wind gusts. I took the edge of the forest east following the county line down to the road, and followed the road back to S115 104 D where my car was parked. I should have planned the route better to avoid the 2 km walk on pavement. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/343/comment/1469/
