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 1372th highest place in Ireland. Krinnuck is the second most northerly summit in the Achill & Corraun area.

Straightforward ascent from the Doogort road SW of the summit, initially across damp bog that improves as the gradient steepens. The cairn is placed at the 211m spot height though the map indicates that the true summit of 214m is in the southern portion of the summit plateau.
