Keadeen Mountain is not obviously flat-topped either when seen from the N (Church Mtn) or from the contours on the map. Céide can also mean a path, way or a place of assembly, fair site, etc. One of these other meanings may be relevant in this case. As it is a townland name, it may not refer to the mountain originally.   Keadeen Mountain is the 192nd highest place in Ireland.

Access to Keadeen from gate near Dwyer Mc Allister cottage car park
by GerryCarroll  3 Aug 2022
Yesterday (29/12/21) I parked at the Dwyer/Mc Allister cottage car park S9663491281 starA and walked along the road (350m) to the gate on the left S963914 starB to access the track to Keadeen (which I have used for access to Keadeen many times over the past 10 years). There was a sign on a closed gate saying “Private farm, Keep out".
Not wanting to cross any private property I walked back towards the car park to my car as I did I came across a local farmer coming out of another gate, I asked him about access at S963914 starB and he told me very firmly that no access was allowed through the gate marked "Private Farm, Keep Out” and that I should access Keadeen via the car park at S985895 starC.
We understand Coillte are planning to provide access from Coillte are planning a route up at Slivereagh, the most popular start point for Keadeen (S984895 starD). Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/186/comment/23371/
