Longitude: -7.850767, Latitude: 52.227213 , Easting: 210248, Northing: 108341 Prominence: 57.92m,  Isolation: 1.2km

Bedrock type: Medium grained pink-purple sandstone, (Knockmealdown Sandstone Formation)

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 summit in Ireland.

For my eastern approach of Knockmeal, I parked my car on the road up from Newcastle at the start of a rough track (S112 083. From there it's a straightforward hike up to the summit of Knockmeal. There are quite a few new forestry tracks not shown on Sheet 74, so take care in poor visibility lest you end up somewhere unexpected on the way back down again. After a steep (but fairly short) slog up the eastern slopes, the rounded dome of the summit area presents itself to you. I then headed on to Knocknafallia.
