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.

Here the Paps are seen from Banard, near Gneeveguilla, about 5 miles to the north. Their name in Irish is An Dá Chích Anann ('the two breasts of Anu', a pagan Irish deity said to be responsible for the fertility of the whole province of Munster). The megalithic cairns on each summit, which enhance the resemblance to the goddess' breasts, have recently been excavated and confirmed to cover passage tombs, which may be as old as the Neolithic era.
