The large peninsula, which is very nearly an island, lying between Achill and the mainland of Mayo is called Corraun (Ir. Corrán Acla, 'sickle of Achill'). The name may refer to the shape of this hill or perhaps to the promontory Gubnahardia, near which the village of Corraun is situated. Corraun is part of the parish of Achill. For a walk on the S slopes of Corraun Hill, see Siúlóidí Acla, walk M.
