Given its altitude , Collán is more likely to be the element meaning 'height' which appears in names such as Sliabh gCallann (Slieve Gallion in Derry) and Collann (Collon, Co. Louth) than coll(-án), 'hazel' . See also Slievecallan, Co. Clare.   Cullaun is the 698th highest place in Ireland.

Enlivened by winter chills.
by Colin Murphy  11 Feb 2022
Besides reasonably good views of the surrounding bucolic countryside, there is little to recommend this hill, although on the morning I did it, an overnight frost had considerably enhanced its appearance. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/585/comment/23408/
