Both the Irish and English names refer to the characteristic shape of this hill, which looks as if a chunk has been bitten out of it between the main peak and Little Rock. Éile is the Irish name for Ely O’Carroll Country. It also appears in Durlas Éile (Thurles). See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 217-20) for details of the festive assembly on the Devil's Bit which took place on 'Rock Sunday' in late July.   Devilsbit Mountain is the 628th highest place in Ireland.

The Devils Loop.
by sandman  20 Jul 2015
Depending on the off road ability of your vehicle you can park without obstructing anyone at S0581075238 starA which will give you the option of a quick up and down to the trig or a pleasant Loop Walk visiting Little Rock with its cross and statue. If you decide on the loop which i did in an anti-clockwise direction access is via the gate into the forest , go left and left again which will take you to Little Rock after which you can follow a well defined track to the summit trig.
