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 432nd highest in Ireland.

At G518 287 H there is a very steep gully which makes for a very strenuous scramble. When you arrive at the corrie at G519 287 I there will be a few gullys, but this one is the one dead south of you. It wouldn't be advisable for those afraid of heights and also I would think it is only possible to do after there has been a dry period, otherwise it will be full of water. Its now been christened "O'Briens Gully" after myself and one of my mates. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/366/comment/1522/
