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 1363th highest summit in Ireland. Krinnuck is the second most northerly summit in the Achill/Corraun area.

A nondescript but rewarding top
by Harry Goodman  6 Jun 2010
Started at F6825809035 (25 May 2010). There is a rough track going S to the right of, and along side, a raised bank marking the boundary of a small white house set back from the road. Due to the undergrowth the track may not be immediately seen from the road but should be easily found. It leads out directly to the hillside from where we continued our walk due S up to the lower top, with a small cairn, and then across the flat broad ridge to the slightly higher "summit" at F6805307877 which is nondescript with no identifying marker whatsoever. We returned by the way of ascent. Out and back was 2.6k and, at a strollers pace, took less than an hour. The short walk along the broad flat top, allowed one to savour the picturesque delights of Achill. Just across W was the sharp cone of Slievemore, while a little to the south of it was the fine bulky outline of Croahaun. Further S were the Cliffs of Menawn while to the E across Inishbiggle we saw the long line of the Nephin Beg Range. On the way back down the lowlands of the Belmullet Peninsula were constantly in view. I found this a delightful short walk which was well worth the little effort required to complete it and which could be easily slotted in on a general sightseeing day visit to Achill. However I must also record that when we were on Achill there had been a particularly dry spell of weather and the underfoot conditions were excellent. After wet weather things might be different when springy turf turns to sludge ! This said it would still not be a difficult walk. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1032/comment/5855/
