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 689th highest place in Ireland.

I headed off for the Slievefelims on Wed 09/09. I left the limerick/thurles road at Rear Cross and headed off for Cappamore. I had intended to drive up the road at R83875 57275 E but I missed the entrance. I continued on this road until I got to lackamore Quarry on my right. Across from this there is an entrance into the woods with parking for about six cars. I followd this track up to a pair of gates at R83400 56000 F. I turned left after the gates and headed for the end of the road. Here I turned right and up onto the road I had intended first. I met a man here and he told me I could have driven to that point. He explained that the road starts with a set of pillars. I had seen these but rejected them as I thought they led into someones farm. When I got to the edge of the forest at R82323 56888 G I turned right and followed the forest service road to nearly the summit. When you get to the high point t turn right and follow the track to the summit. The summit has a small hole dug out for shelter and a white flag on a piece of 2 by 1. On my return to Rear Cross I marked the entrance I intended first and measured the distance to Rear Cross. So if you are going to go on this walk 2.5 KM after rear Cross turn right for this road as you head out for your walk. this road is driveable all the way around. It has a set of pillars and a wall similar to a private residence, but in need of some repair. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/585/comment/4284/
