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.

A dull top transformed by winter magic

The comment by davema (admittedly 8 years old) seems to suggest that there is an obvious access to the summit slopes from the forest track at point D. Be warned, this track simply leads to forestry, and unless you're prepared to clamber through several obstacles, I suggest starting somewhere else. Anyway, I followed the track for 100m where it comes to a T-junction. I turned right (having tried the left with no success) and had to cross two barbed wire fences on the track. After about 200m the track ends with another fence and a fallen tree. I turned towards the forestry and clambered through brambles, mounds, a hidden brook, marshy ground and another barbed wire fence to get to the trees. Being mature, these were relatively easy to walk through and after about 50m came on to the open hillside. The ascent to the SW is steep but relatively straightforward and most of the climbing is done in the first km. After that continue directly SW for 2km to the broad mound that is Knockalongy. Having done Annatoran previously, I was expecting a dull slog through mud and peat hags, but snow and blue skies transformed the broad area into a winter wonderland of pure white drifts, icicles and frozen ponds and brooks. Reached the summit in 1.45min and was back at car after 3 hours total. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/366/comment/17776/
