Who named it that?

I've never heard the high point of the Beenkeeragh ridge called 'The Bones' - anyone know the origin of the name as it's certainly not used by the local walkers or climbers down in the Kingdom. There is 'The Bone' ridge further east along the Reeks walk though... Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/7/comment/6307/
