This peak is in the townland of Baile na Loiste / Ballynalost, parish of Clondavaddog. It is marked as Knockdonnelly on the first edition OS 6" map, but this was later revised to Crockdonnelly, no doubt to reflect the local pronunciation of cnoc, 'hill'. The second element has nothing to do with the surname Donnelly. It is from Ir. teannála, 'signal-fire'. Previously called Ballynabrocky Hill in MV.
Cnoc na dTeannála is the 1470th highest place in Ireland. Cnoc na dTeannála is the most northerly summit in the Donegal NW area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1348/
