Overlooks the valley of Coomura. The name was recorded in 1845 as Cruckmweel with the approval of T.E. Larcom (Lieutenant Thomas Larcom of Royal Engineers, in charge of the Ordnance Survey in Ireland) and then given a standardised anglicisation as Knockmoyle by John O’Donovan, the renowned Gaelic scholar who was later appointed Professor of Celtic Languages at Queen’s College, Belfast. The Irish name for this peak is given as Eisc an Ghalláin at logainm.ie, citing the aerial map in Ó Cíobháin’s Toponomia Hiberniae III. However, this name means ‘ravine of the standing stone’ and is marked on O’Cíobháin’s own map as a ravine leading up to this peak, not as a name of the peak itself, which is unnamed on the map.
