In the OS Name Book John O'Donavan suggests the derivation Cnoc Lomannach [JOD], 'hill of the pinnacle'. This would account for the anglicised form Knocklomena. There seems to be some confusion between Ir. meannán, 'a kid goat' and mionnán, 'a pinnacle'.   Knocklomena is the 215th highest place in Ireland.

Climbed Knocklomena today as part of a ring walk (not exactly a horse shoe). Approached from the west side of Lough Fadda, up the gully. Got up as far as 3/4 had to divert then to the north. Too much steep rock (overhanging in places). It was worth the try though! you would have to bring ropes to complete the last part. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/208/comment/3827/
