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.

Pdtempan informs us that Krinnuck is derived from Cruinneog meaning “Little Round Hill”, and that a glance at the map contours will highlight the rounded nature of the hill. My photo shows exactly how Small & Rounded Krinnuck is-especially when it is contrasted with its large neighbour Slievemore to the west! Slievemore is only 3 times higher, but its bulk helps it to completely dominate Krinnuck in the picture. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1032/comment/3667/
