According to An Seabhac this peak is named after Loch na Réidhchoilleach (Lough Rehill), which is at its foot. The anglicised form Foilclogh is misleading, as it suggests the second element is cloch, 'stone'. Foilalough would have been more faithful to the original Irish name.   Foilclogh is the 570th highest place in Ireland.

Lovely views ..... average hike
by TommyV  12 Jun 2019
Foilclogh is quite a central hill towards the Southern half of the Iveragh peninsula so the views at the top are fantastic. The summit itself however is a bland elevated hump and the hike up is not overly exciting. There is room to park at a forest entrance at on the North side of the hill at V49090 75506 C but note that the forest itself does not provide access to the open hillside. Follow the road East and you will encounter a sheep pen which will get you onto the open ground. The ground here is initially quite wet and as I found out on the way back it's possibly better to head further East to access the spur running up the hill as the terrain here is much drier.
