In his pioneering article on the place-names of North Wicklow and South Dublin mentioned in the tale Togail Bruidne Da Derga (JRSAI lxv, 1935), Eoin Mac Néill had some difficulty with the name Ó Cualann, for which he suggested the meaning 'sheep of Cualu' , due to some imagined resemblance. However, although this meaning is known in Old Irish, there is good reason to believe that ó here is a hill-name element, simply meaning 'lump'. It is rare, but is found in Gleann Ó (Glenoe, Co. Antrim [DUPN]) and in Mullach an Ó (East Mayo). For the English name Sugarloaf, For origin of name, see Sugarloaf Hill in the Knockmealdowns.   Great Sugar Loaf is the 461st highest summit in Ireland.

Stairs to an icon.
by simon3  3 Mar 2013 Not so obvious from some directions, the Great Sugar Loaf falls away to the north in a series of great steps of very similar shape all so familiar to the beehive outlines of Connemara.
