The Dictionary of Celtic Mythology gives the full name as Dá Chích Anann, 'the two breasts of Anu'. This goddess was reputedly responsible for the fertility of the whole province of Munster. A line of stones, known as na Fiacla, connects the two tops and is believed to have formed a processional route.   The Paps East is the highest mountain in the Paps/Derrynasaggart area and the 120th highest in Ireland.

The Paps, Mullaghanish and Mushermore
by peter1  29 Oct 2012
I followed the trail to The Paps today from the Clydagh Valley, and noted that the forest on the lower, Eastern slopes of The Paps East has been harvested. This visibly opens up the side of the mountain though is quite rough for walking.
BTW, this was the first of Three walks I completed today...after The Paps, I drove around to Mullaghanish and walked up the road ( 90mins or so for the return), followed by a drive around to Musheramore (60mins up and down) in late afternoon sunshine! Superb. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/116/comment/14848/
