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.
