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.

A view in a million
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, jackill,  2 Mar 2015
Park in the large car park at the Connor pass.
Cross the main road and head due east uphill following a distinct track for 200 meters, leave this track as it swings sharply south and continue uphill and east, skirting cliffs to your left side.
You will come to a small semicircle of stones at about 620 mtrs elevation , pick up a low stone wall and follow it to the unmarked summit of Slieveanea about 400 meters to the east.
From Slieveanea head south from the summit crossing rough bog for a little while before an easy ascent across a stoney surface to an Cnapan Mor , then descend to the Windy Gap and follow with a grassy sharp ascent to the summit of Cnoc na Bánóige and a long easy ridge to Knocmulananes summit cairn.
An alternative is to park at the car park beside Lough Anscaul and ascend directly up the steep eastern slope. This becomes tricky around 400m elevation when you must ascend through a narrow gully which involves some climbing - and a warning - this can be a little dangerous in wet conditions. After that continue directly west for about 500m to reach the summit which is marked by a cairn. From car to cairn took 1 hour 20 mins. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/288/comment/5048/
