Ir. long usually means a boat, but in the absence of any story to explain this, the sense 'encampment' seems more plausible.   Knockalongy is the highest mountain in the Ox Mountains area and the 432nd highest in Ireland.

New Comment: Peat hag central.
by TommyV  2 Nov 2018
Parking at a little car park in a spot known as Ladies Brae on the Sligo way at G531160 A 29071 This walk starts out pleasant follwing the road downhill heading North West. A farm track at G52487 29455 B leads onto the open mountain where there is a a steep climb to 535 meters. Generally this would be the hardest part of any hike considering the trig point is at 544 metres but this is not the case for the highest point in the Ox Mountains. To reach the trig involves a 2 kilometer traverse South West across a boggy plateau covered in peat hags which really hinders progress, especially when one is under pressure to be down off the mountain before dark. The hike to 535m is nice. The trek to the trig point is purely for box ticking purposes. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/366/comment/20151/
