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 978th highest summit in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/917/
