Given its altitude , Collán is more likely to be the element meaning 'height' which appears in names such as Sliabh gCallann (Slieve Gallion in Derry) and Collann (Collon, Co. Louth) than coll(-án), 'hazel' . See also Slievecallan, Co. Clare.   Cullaun is the 689th highest summit in Ireland.

Being mooned on the Knockmealdowns was an unusual experiance on a mountain
Topless sunbathers in the Galtys was another.
Makes this seem somewhat tame but still unusual.
