Grogán may be a variant of gruagán/grógán. This can mean a pyramidal heap of turf-sods set on end to dry, or alternatively a hard patch of land [Dinneen]. The second meaning may be the appropriate one. The same word also appears in An Grogán Beag and An Grogán Carrach, two neighbouring hills.
An Grogán Mór is the 704th highest summit in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/595/
