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.

Did this from Pap West (see entry for way up!) Took less than 30 minutes to cross col and gain summit from summit of Paps West. To return to car we dropped down to col again and contoured S with Paps West and then Rodgers Rock to our right and back to our way up. Two lovely mountains whic for a three hour walk are well worth doing in their own right, as well as for the views they offer over Kerry and Cork.
