Ir. long usually means a boat, but in the absence of any story to explain this, the sense 'encampment' seems more plausible.   Knockalongy is the highest mountain in the Ox Mountains area and the 433rd highest in Ireland.

Climbed this from the north side above Lough Aghree. This is the steepest and most rocky part of the mountain, so it would be the most interesting route to ascend. From the south shore of the lake I headed up this face in a south east direction. Watch out for peregrine falcons on the way up, I've heard that they live in some of the cliffs and i'm pretty sure I spotted one or two. When you get to the top of this steep section its about a 2km walk in a south west direction to the trig pillar on top of Knockalongy. A pair of gaiters is definitely worth having as the plateau is very wet and I sank up to my knee in muck on more than one occasion.Theres a nice view out over Mayo from here and also an alternative and lesser seen view of Sligo and Donegal Bay to that from Benbulben Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/366/comment/1083/
