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 third highest mountain in the Ox Mountains area and the 504th highest in Ireland.

Bag it, forget it.

I'd rank this summit as among the worst Arderin Begs in Ireland (Mullaghdoo in the Sperrins also comes to mind) in that it is a seemingly interminable trudge through peat hags with little scenic merit and a barely discernible summit. I did it on a beautiful day, so I can only imagine the misery of doing it in poor conditions. The only consolation I found was that the approach along the long forest road to the south was enjoyable as it runs right next to a tributary of the Owenboy River. Other than that, this one if purely a bagging exercise. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1472/comment/23498/
