Another possible interpretation is 'sedge of the hornless cow' as maol is feminine in this name. However, note that this peak is in the townland of Meoul, which actually suggests Ir. meall, 'lump', rather than maol.   Knockmeal is the 395th highest place in Ireland.

View of Knockmeal from S083 112 C. Followed the track(there are two side by side) for approx. 0.75 km. The track then swings around to the south west (not shown on map) just above the trees in the photo towards Knocknafallia.- I didn't follow this track but went straight ahead 0.5 kms over bog and heather to the summit cairn of Knockmeal. From Knockmeal I followed the wall as marked on the map over to Crohan West. Very wet afternoon - at least I tested the new jacket ! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/343/comment/1273/
