This hill is unnamed on OS maps but is mentioned in the Co. Mayo Development Plan as Doogort Hill. However, a local bi-lingual walking guide names as Cruinneoc (which has here been standardised to Cruinneog), a wonderfully descriptive name for this little round hill. The round shape is very evident from the pattern of concentric oval-shaped contours on the map. The anglicised form Krinnuck is found on William Bald's map of Mayo (1830). This is a good example of how easily local names can be lost and are sometimes unknown even to local authorities in whose area they are located. For a walk around the base of Krinnuck, see Siúlóidí Acla, walk F.   Krinnuck is the 1365th highest place in Ireland. Krinnuck is the second most northerly summit in the Achill/Corraun area.

Up and over a fine Hill
by eamonoc  14 Aug 2013
12/8/2013 After Dereens, Minaun and three hrs bodyboarding on Tra Mor I decided to climb Krinnuck. Started at point C as mentioned by Harry Goodman, I was able to follow an old disused track about half way up to the top of Krinnuck, which kept my feet dry. i reached the top in about 20mins. Then headed north to the lower top where there was a small Cairn, then headed down to track at Point A. Had no difficulty finding this track. Then headed towards beach at Dooagh for a well earned swim. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1032/comment/15070/
