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 121st highest in Ireland.

Colin Murphy on The Paps East, 2008
by Colin Murphy  12 May 2008
A barely surfaced 'road' allows you to drive to the northern tip of Lough Glannafeaghaun where you'll find a gate and space for a couple of cars to park beyond it. From there a track (pictured) leads along the eastern side of the lake past some ruggedly beautiful scenery. From the southern end of the lake you can then ascend to The Paps East over some steep and rough terrain. Taking in Paps West is relatively easy after that, unfortunately though the only route home is to retrace your steps. Unfortunately also the day we chose our view from the tops through a soupy mist was about ten metres. Second pic shows the impressively large Paps East Cairn.
