Three cairns on the summit ridge of Dromavally Mountain are named Cú Chulainn's House, Cú Chulainn's Bed and Cú Chulainn's Grave. It is intriguing that there are several folk-tales about Cú Chulainn recorded on the Dingle Peninsula, far away from his home area in Cooley and SE Ulster. See Knockmulanane for the legend concerning Scál Ní Mhurnáin, Cú Chulainn and the giant. Previously Reamore in MV.   Dromavally Mountain is the 416th highest place in Ireland.

Picture: Dromavally from the north, with Brickany backdrop.
 
Misty view from the North.

Here is a misty view of the summit from the NW on the ridge that extends East of Stradbally Mountain.
The murky skyline of this picture has the small summit of Brickany in it.
The picture makes Brickany look higher than Dromavally however the true relationships in the picture are something like this.

Camera on flank of Stradbally around 660m : Dromavally 552m : Brickany 374m

On a clearer day it would be obvious because the land behind Brickany (Inch Strand) would be visible. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/355/comment/17572/
