As with Aghla More and Aghla Beg further north in Donegal, Patrick McKay sees the modern form as a re-interpretation of the original name Achla, a form of Aichill, meaning 'a look-out point or prospect' (Dictionary of Ulster Place-Names). Achill Island in Mayo (Ir. Acaill) may well be derived from the same root.
An Eachla is the 307th highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/289/
