Eoin Mac Neill believed that the name Drobeóil, mentioned in the Metrical Dindshenchas and seemingly referring to a pass, had survived in the mountain name Gravale (JRSAI lxv, 14). On Nevill's map of 1760 the high ground W of Gravale is marked as Lavarna. Price says that this is pronounced Lavarnia and is derived from Leath-Bhearna. On the Downshire Estate map of 1806 Lavarna Gap is marked on the ridge above Lavarney Spout, between Gravale and Duff Hill. Price comments that this was a route from Lough Dan to Blessington.
Gravale is the 100th highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/97/
