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 Derrynasaggart area and the 121st highest in Ireland.

There is a forestry road in the Clydagh Valley with parking at W12955 83343 starA. Following this road will lead you out onto the open mountain. From here it's a steep pull up to spot height 562 metres but thankfully from here the climb up to the Paps West top is more gradual. Most people will take in the East and West Paps on a visit to these mountains so to take in the slightly higher East top involves dropping down to about 580 metres before climbing another 100 metres again. From here follow the spur of the East top South and the drop down to where the East and West spurs finish. Some faint trails from here will lead you back to the forestry road.
