The Ordnance Survey Name Book suggests that Breasal is a man's name, but a connection with raddle, the red dye traditionally used to mark sheep, seems more likely.   Brassel Mountain is the 348th highest place in Ireland. Brassel Mountain is the second most southerly summit in the MacGillycuddy's Reeks area.
