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 433rd highest in Ireland.

Climbed this from the north-east side last Monday - having parked at a forest entrance along "Ladies Brae" (G532289 D). The vis at the bottom was ok when we started the ascent up the steep side, but once we reached 500m (around G520284 E), we were in thick cloud and driving wind and mist. On came the waterproofs, and we continued south-west along a very boggy plateau until we reached the trig point at G504275 F (at this point, we had also resorted to GPS to make sure we didn't miss it in the hargs/rain/fog) . After a shot of food in the shelter of a turf bank, we retreated due north and followed a stream down the mountain. Once out of the fog (G504290 G), we turned north-eastwards towards the north edge of Lough Aghree, under the imposing rocky crags that cover the north of the Ox Mountains, and eventually back to the road leading to our car. A good walk, taking about 4 hours. I'd say the views are impressive on a clear day - hopefully, I'll be back to see them sometime soon. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/366/comment/2533/
