Also called the Mottie. The second element in Croaghanmoira is most likely from the title of the Earl of Moira who had lands in the vicinity of Greenan. Papers of the Kemmis family record that Thomas Kemmis purchased lands in the area around Greenan in 1805 from the Right Honourable Francis Rawdon Hastings, Earl of Moira. Croaghanmoira stands above Greenan and would clearly have been part of this estate. It would thus be the Cruachán on the Earl of Moira's land, prior to the sale of the land in 1805, in contrast to Croghan Kinsella, which lies about 10 miles to the S.
Croaghanmoira is the 172nd highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/168/
