This is the highest point in Slieve Margy. The name Clogrennan Hill does not appear on OS maps but is confirmed by sources such as Richard Griffith's Geological and Mining Report on the Leinster Coal District (1814), which states that the River Dinan has its source near the summit of Clogrennan-Hill. Clogrenan is a townland straddling the Laois/Carlow border and also a district. On the summit plateau is also Rossmore Bog, Rossmore being a townland in the parish of Killeshin, barony of Slievemargy. This hill appears to be the location of Temair Mairge (the Tara of Margy) mentioned in Lebor na hUidre and the Yellow Book of Lecan.   Clogrennan Hill is the 1079th highest place in Ireland.

Mining.

As wicklore mentions there is quite a bit of mining around here. A quick search reveals that there is coal and limestone mining in the area. Within 200m of the trig pillar and to the SW is a largish bank of earth which seems to have been thrown out of a quarry. It may be a bit higher than the trig pillar.

Here is a picture of the quarry. Potentially the view from Clogrennan should be good, but there was a lot of mist the day that we were there. It is interesting to note this is another industrialised top though it's not as affected as Seltannasaggart. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/917/comment/4651/
