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 566th highest summit in Ireland.

As I didn't have much time I took the lazy way up. I parked in the car park on the little road over Callary Bog(235 119 B) O S sheet 56. Unfortunately I found the place to be filthy and completely littered. This is so sad. The walk is easy but the last bit---150/200 feet needs care as it is a scramble over scree and loose stones. Even though it was Mid Sept I was able to sit in the sun for an hour in a temp of 20 plus and without a puff of wind. The views were fantastic and it was great to have the hill to myself as I believe it can be busy. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/455/comment/716/
