Also called the Mottie. The second element in Croaghanmoira is most likely from the title of the Earl of Moira who had lands in the vicinity of Greenan. Papers of the Kemmis family record that Thomas Kemmis purchased lands in the area around Greenan in 1805 from the Right Honourable Francis Rawdon Hastings, Earl of Moira. Croaghanmoira stands above Greenan and would clearly have been part of this estate. It would thus be the Cruachán on the Earl of Moira's land, prior to the sale of the land in 1805, in contrast to Croghan Kinsella, which lies about 10 miles to the S.   Croaghanmoira is the 168th highest summit in Ireland.

Views, glorious views
by paulocon  21 May 2012 Nothing really much to add to what's here already. A handy walk of about 4km return using forest tracks from the West. Superb views on top (and I was particularly lucky to get the one good evening in the middle of a really bad spell of weather). Anyone know what the triangular looking mountain is in the background of the included picture?
