The name Maumean / Mám Éan in this location seems open to some doubt. It ought to refer to a col rather than a peak, but it is not mentioned by Tim Robinson either on his map or in the gazetteer, and since there is a Mám Éan about 6km further to the SW, there seems reason to suspect a confusion with this name.   Cnoc na hUilleann North Top is the 440th highest place in Ireland.
