Brí Éile, '(fortified) hill of Éile', is the earlier Irish name of this hill. Éile (Ely) is a large territory covering parts of Offaly and Tipperary. 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.

Have climbed Croghan Hill several times always using the same route. The old school now the community centre has parking off road. If standing at the front door of the only and most useful shop, turn left and follow the road as it ascends to find the old school. Climb over the bullwire fence head for the hill. A low barbed wire fence is easily traversed and the reat of the hill has but one more fence. This approach is from the southern side. The views are just great. The hill is like an island in the bog. One can imagine St. Patrick, High Kings etc above on it. The trig as usual ruins the cairn. A handy climb but a good one. Views are worth the bother.
