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 395th highest summit in Ireland.

Knockmeal is the most easterly of the 500m mountains in the Knockmealdowns. From it there is a view to most of the east of the range where there is Knocknasculloge (432m) and Knocknanask (486m). Our photo shows the modest cairn and the view to the west, along the north face of the main ridge. Claude Wall said of the Knockmealdowns “The traverse along the principal summits is a grand rough moorland walk of about twelve miles.” From Knockmeal you can see much of the walk. In the midground of the picture you can see the high prow of Knocknagnauv around just left of the middle of the picture. On the skyline you can see Knockmoylan (768m) just to the right of Knocknagnauv. To the right of Knockmoylan is a spur known as Knockshane. Knockmealdown, the highest mountain of the range, is obscured by Knocknagnauv. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/343/comment/371/
