This hill is unnamed on OS maps but is mentioned in the Co. Mayo Development Plan as Doogort Hill. However, a local bi-lingual walking guide names as Cruinneoc (which has here been standardised to Cruinneog), a wonderfully descriptive name for this little round hill. The round shape is very evident from the pattern of concentric oval-shaped contours on the map. The anglicised form Krinnuck is found on William Bald's map of Mayo (1830). This is a good example of how easily local names can be lost and are sometimes unknown even to local authorities in whose area they are located. For a walk around the base of Krinnuck, see Siúlóidí Acla, walk F.   Krinnuck is the 1364th highest summit in Ireland. Krinnuck is the second most northerly summit in the Achill/Corraun area.

I decided to climb Krinnuck to round off a days walking on Achill Island. I found a little track where I could pull the car off the road at F672 069. From here it was a straightforward haul across bog and up to the summit. The ground is awkward at times-wet and boggy in places and teeming with hidden hollows under the heather in others. However it is less than 20 minutes to the top, so the awkward ground is short lived. This hill is treeless and covered in heather. There is no discernible summit so I just chose the most likely place at F681 079 D. The 200 metres altitude gives a nice vista of the surrounding land, but most striking is the view of nearby Slievemore. I took the attached photo as the sun was disappearing in the evening. The summit area of Krinnuck is pristine with only the local hardy sheep breaking the isolation. Well worth the minimal effort required if you are passing by.
