Máire MacNeill comments on the place-names around Brandon as follows: From An Seabhac's compendium of the place-names of the district we learn that several places on the mountain have names suggestive of myths which recur at other Lughnasa sites, e.g. Macha an Mhíl (the Beast's Pasture), Faill na nDeamhan (the Demons' Cliff), Com na Caillighe (the Hag's Recess), Loch na Mná (the Woman's Lake), Cnoc an Tairbh (the Bull's Hill), etc. [MacNeill, The festival of Lughnasa, 105] Faill na nDeamhan on Brandon is paralled by Log na nDeamhan (Lugnademon) on Croagh Patrick.   Brandon South Top is the 50th highest place in Ireland.

Cloghane is at the end of the inlet with the grotto at Faha under the start of the ridge on the left side of the photo. A trail marked with yellow arrows pointed the way in June 2004 to the climb up Mount Brandon from Loch Chom an Chnoic. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/49/comment/1102/
