Overlooks Ballaghisheen (Ir. Bealach Oisín, 'pass of Oisín' from the north. A ridge to the north connects with Meenteog on the Glenbeigh Horseshoe. There are several names mentioned by Ó Cíobháin with the element collach, lit. 'a boar', but referring to boulders. This may be the origin of Colly, but there are other possibilities.   Colly is the 145th highest place in Ireland.

The summit of Colly is the mountain in the centre of this photograph which has a very distinct diagonal line running across the slope of the mountain. Immediately behind Colly is Meenteog and to the the left is Macklaun.

Colly is easily climbed from Ballaghisheen Pass via Knocknagapple or included as part of a sidetrip on a long days walk of the Glenbeigh Horseshoe Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/140/comment/2111/
