The legend is told of Loch an Scáil, the mountain lake. The word scál… has associations with Lugh, but in this legend it is the name of a woman who lived near the lake. Scál Ní Mhurnáin she was called. A giant was about to carry her off and she sent word to Cúchulainn to defend her. Cúchulainn stood on top of the mountain to the east of the lake [Dromavally Mountain]. The giant was on the summit of the opposite western mountain [Knockmulanane]. They exchanged challenges in verse-form and then began their battle which consisted of throwing rocks at each other across the valley. It lasted for a week, at the end of which Cúchulainn was hit and moaned with pain. When Scál heard the moaning she thought her defender was killed and she leaped into the lake and was drowned (Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' , pp. 208-09).   Knockmulanane is the 306th highest place in Ireland.

Fairly level topped ridge

One interpretation of the Irish name is "flat-topped hill". This picture, taken from the north, would suggest that description is apt. Once you attain the ridge line, there is no significant effort required to summit the neighbouring top to the west. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/288/comment/23489/
