This peak is unnamed on OS maps, but is called Maul Laur on Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830). This is probably an anglicisation of Ir. Meall Láir, 'middle lump', indicating its position half-way beween Ben Creggan and Ben Gorm.   Ben Creggan South Top is the third highest mountain in the Ben Gorm Mountains area and the 132nd highest in Ireland.

Start Ashleagh Falls, Ben Gorm, Ben Creggan South Top, Ben Creggan (3 hrs). Amazing views of Mweelreas & Sheefrys. Desending to col from BCST requires care before ascending to BC. Rather than retracing back along peaks again, descended back to col between BCST & BC, then heading westwards, down long long wide grassy slope following river gully (dry conditions & hiking poles recommended) down to Delphi & hitched back. Also safe route exit option in poor visibility. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/128/comment/16042/
