Knockmealdown gives its name to the range as a whole, but the earlier name for these hills, along with the lower hill country to the east, is Sliabh gCua. There is a traditional air entitled Sliabh Geal gCua na Féile, meaning 'bright Sliabh gCua of the festival'. The name Maoldomhnach means ‘devotee of the church’. The surnames derived from this are Ó Maoldomhnaigh (anglicised Muldowney) and its variant Ó Maoldhomhnaigh (anglicised Moloney). Moloney is still a common surname in the vicinity. Some sources translate the name as Cnoc Maol Donn, 'bare round hill', but this is a poor attempt to interpret the name only on the basis of the modern anglicised form. The form Knockmealdowny, recorded in the Civil Survey in 1654, shows that was clearly an additional syllable.   Knockmealdown is the highest mountain in the Knockmealdown Mountains area and the 47th highest in Ireland. Knockmealdown is the second highest point in county Waterford.

Walk Date: 01 Aug 2015. I have had many walks to Knockmealdown previously, with various start points, Baylough Car Park, The Vee, even from home in Gurtacullen in the shadow of the Vee at one time. I completed the Knockmealdown crossing organised by Peaks MC from Goatenbridge to Ballyporeen in 2015 also.The possibilities are endless for this mountain range but you will always be happy with the views on whatever route you choose. This time we parked at the Duckpond at Kildanogue between Goatenbridge and Clogheen and set out for Knockmealdown. Dillon(dillonkdy) was with me again and the plan was to take in another County High Point. We went up the side of Knockmoylan and over to the trig on Knockmealdown returning via the side of Sugarloaf Hill onto part of the Tipperary Heritage Way to the Duckpond. It was a lovely summer day and while we spent 4 hours walking we didn’t notice the time going.
See Dillon’s (dillonkdy) full story of his County High Point Challenge at https://dillons32chpchallenge.github.io/progress/index.html We also found Kieron Gribbon's High Point Ireland website (www.highpointireland.com) to be a useful source of information for our 32 County High Points challenge. Definitely worth checking out if you're planning to do any of the High Point challenges. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/45/comment/18805/
