Bearnán Éile (Devilsbit Mountain) is at the other end of it. The Hill of Croghan is the remains of an old volcano. A bog body, known as 'Old Croaghan Man', was found in the vicinity in 2003.   Croghan Hill is the 1314th highest summit in Ireland.

In a departure from my usual bagging of 2000ft tops I tried a few local tops. Croghan Hill being only a half hour from home and a half hour to walk it makes a pleasant Friday night climb! Parked car in Croghan village which has a shop where I could bribe the grandkids to climb with me in the future with a promise of icecream on return!
Lovely views from the top of the midlands bogs and fields. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1017/comment/3869/
