P.W. Joyce preferred the interpretation Cnoc na Riaghadh, 'hill of the executions'. Cnoc na Riogha, 'hill of the kings', has also been suggested. The huge cairn on the summit plateau is called Meascán Méabha, 'Maeve's mound'. It is considered likely that it conceals a passage tomb, though it has not yet been excavated. For more information on the archaeology, see Transforming Knocknarea - the archaeology of a mountain by Stefan Bergh, Archaeology Ireland, vol. 14, no. 2 (2000), pp. 14-18.   Knocknarea is the 1097th highest place in Ireland. Knocknarea is the most northerly summit in the Ox Mountains area.
