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.

Praeger [The Way that I Went] said "The Ox Mountains do not offer much to the visitor - broad, wet heathery slopes and a broad flat boggy top are the leading features, and only about some of the little lakes is the range attractive."

How do you like your mountain experience? Ascetic? Energy sapping? No people?

Ah yes you would like this ridge from Annatoran to Knockalongy. eflanaga says "light tussock grass and the odd peat hag" .. ha, more like soggy ground in between eroded channels and big stretches of sucking bog.

For further penitence bag both of the summits without a car split so you go forth and then back. Feel free to chant - no-one to notice. In my case I started from the Lough Easky ( which is pretty) and the Annatoran, western end. I can promise you few distractions, truly.

Oh ok, there was this 25MW wind farm in the Owenduff valley to the west of Knockalongy. Light relief from the ascetic experience. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/366/comment/2700/
