The Uí Chinnsealaigh were the dominant Gaelic family in this area and the mountain gets the fuller version of its name from them. This helps to distinguish it from Croaghanmoira, which is a little further north.   Croghan Kinsella is the 273rd highest place in Ireland.

Windfarms completed. Walking trails nearly ready but the trails are industrial
by mickhanney  10 Dec 2016
Jogged up Croghan Kinsella from entrance at Ballinvalley near Ballycoog where there is space for a couple of cars. The trail upwards is wide and rather industrial in nature. The trail switches back a few times before you ascend up to where the new windfarm is complete. There are walking trails about to open here but the signposts are still incomplete The work on the windfarm has introduced wide roadways on the mountain which are decidedly ugly. This allied to the reduced tree cover near the windfarms spoils the outlook on the mountain. Its a pity that once the windfarms are installed they don't restore the trails to the natural look they were before. However, when you ascend to the top of Croghan Kinsella the views are worthwhile, in all directions. Jogged back downhill to Ballyvalley Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/261/comment/18725/
