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 51st highest summit in Ireland.
