The highest point on Horn Head. The Metrical Dindsenchas contains a reference to Sliab Irguill, which the editor Edward Gwynn identifies with Horn Head, so it be an old name for Croaghnamaddy or may have referred to all the upland on Horn Head. For origin of name, see Ganiamore re the name Sliab Guill. There is another Croaghnamaddy SW of Dungloe.   Croaghnamaddy is the 1270th highest place in Ireland.

Croaghnamaddy should really be climbed as part of the classic Horn Head Coastal walk, but for those who have missed it out, it is only 6 mins from the view point car park at roughly 026405 G. From here cross the road and climb up to a small ring contour, with a small cairn on top, which is clearly visible from the car park. Then ascend Croaghnamaddy in a rising curved route , to avoid a re entrant on your left, pick your way through a small rocky band to the trig point. There great views out over the north Donegal coast and back to the hills. Descend the way of ascent, don't be tempted into the re entrant , with its flat area leading to the road. Here lies soft ground and waist deep bushes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/999/comment/4229/
