Brí Éile, '(fortified) hill of Éile', is the earlier Irish name of this hill. Éile (Ely) is a large territory covering parts of Offaly and Tipperary. Bearnán Éile (Devilsbit Mountain) is at the other end of it. The Hill of Croghan is the remains of an old volcano. A bog body, known as 'Old Croaghan Man', was found in the vicinity in 2003.   Croghan Hill is the 1321th highest place in Ireland. Croghan Hill is the most northerly summit in the South East Midlands area.

Broken Trig Pillar to be replaced
by TommyMc  12 Feb 2019
The recent damage to the Croghan Hill trig pillar is covered in an article in this week's Offaly Independent.

The good news is that Offaly County Council plans to replace the damaged pillar to its original state.

Last year, the council purchased the land on which the hill is located. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1017/comment/20418/
