It was the tradition for local children to pick berries on the mountain on the last Sunday of July, known locally as Garlic Sunday (apparently a corruption of 'garland') (MacNeill, 191). Walks: for a cliff-top walk near Achill Head, see Siúlóidí Acla, walk A. Previously Tonacroaghaun in MV.   Croaghaun is the highest mountain in the Achill/Corraun area and the 131st highest in Ireland.
