Málainn is rare element of obscure origin and meaning, occurring in a handul of place-names scattered throughout the country. For origin of name, see articles by Paul Tempan: The Element Málainn in Place-names in the Kerry Magazine, No. 18, 2008 (15-16) and An Eilimint Málainn i Logainmneacha in the Donegal Annual 2006 (218-19). There are references in early Irish texts to Málu, site of a battle in Leinster. This mountain has been proposed as an identification by Eoin MacNeill (JRSAI lxv, 14), but this is far from certain.
Maulin is the 362nd highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/327/
