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.

Continuing the route of track 3323 having already done the North East Top.
This is another hill adorned like everywhere else on this part of the Ox mountains, with peat hags of all sizes and stages of squidgyness.
Eflanaga's 2006 comment must have been tongue in cheek, as there was little evidence of the Shangri-la of "light tussocky grass and the occasional peat hag"
Unless by occasional one means every second step!
It is, however a gloriously empty place of any human intervention. No litter, no footprints, paths, tracks or even the now ubiquitous twin tracks of quads. Just pretend the three clumps of wind turbines on the lower slopes aren't there! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/366/comment/23305/
