Knockacappul is the name of a townland on the SE side of this peak, whose name is from Ir. Cnoc an Chapaill, 'hill of the horse'. The name may well originally refer to this peak.   Knockalongy South-West Top is the second highest mountain in the Ox Mountains area and the 505th highest in Ireland.

Peaty Summit.. .. by sandman   (Show all for Knockalongy South-West Top (Cnoc na Loinge (mullach thiar theas)))
 
Beware of the barrier
by madfrankie  23 Apr 2019
We followed sandman's route to the summit which is probably the best way to explore Knockalongy and its satellites. Gentle gradients but many eroded peat hags. Worth noting that the forest barrier was open when we arrived, but closed when we returned to our cars (thankfully parked on the right side!), so probably best to drive no further than this point.
