Tim Robinson suggests roighne is righin, 'tough or stubborn', (TR, 103) but it seems more likely that it is simply roighne, 'the best part', perhaps a praise-name for an old land division rather than the hill itself.   Roighne Mhór is the 750th highest summit in Ireland. Roighne Mhór is the second most westerly summit in the Partry/Joyce Country area.

New Comment: Nice Views.

Because of my visit to near by Knocknafaughy i ascended this hill on the opposite side to Mark, although steep not as steep as the accent from the R336 road. If you wish you can park at L9288658759 A and follow the farm tract to the base of the hill. No cairn exists at the summit so to the previous comment your memory is still good.
