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 1316th highest summit in Ireland.

Family Friendly Morning Stroll
by salamander  3 Oct 2011
Had a great morning in August climbing Croghan with my wife, three daughters 8, 5 and a six month old on my back. Were advised by very friendly shopkeeper to park at the community centre mentioned in youngjohns post. A timber stile is provided to hop the fence behind the centre. Easy enough climbing as one passes the Croghan Challenge assault course (which made me wheeze for breath just looking at it!) Again hopped a few barbed fences, drove a few disgruntled cattle and arrived a the top where we enjoyed the view and ate our picnic. We would have enjoyed the views for longer had it not been for a very persistent wasp! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1017/comment/6554/
