This hill is unnamed on OS maps, but it is mentioned in the Parliamentary Gazetter of Ireland: Collon-hill, 3¾ miles south-south-west of Wicklow, 782 feet. James Fraser describes in more detail in A Hand Book for Travellers in Ireland: Two miles to the seaward of Kilboy bridge [near Kilbride] is the Hill of Collon. It attains an elevation of 782 feet and is remarkable as rising considerably over the lower hills with which the surface of the country is varied; and from it an extensive view of the coast and country around are obtained. The townlands of Cullen Upper and Lower appear to have the same name in a variant spelling. For origin of name, see also Collin Top and Big Collin (Co. Antrim). Has been called Castletimon Hill.
Collon Hill is the 1304th highest summit in Ireland. Collon Hill is the second most easterly summit in the Dublin/Wicklow area. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1011/
