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 623rd highest place in Ireland.

Get a bit of the Devil in ya!
by TommyV  2 Jan 2019
After a day of bagging some of the more unremarkable summits in North Tipperary, Devilsbit was a delight. There is designated parking at S06115 73178 E. Follow the waymarked path all the way to the tower known as Carden's Folly. There is plenty to see here with a noticeboard with information on the history of the place, and the ludicrous story of how the mountain got its name. A few meters from here is a grotto and behind that Little Rock with its giant cross that is lit up every night and our mini version of Rio's Christ the Redeemer statue with Mary standing tall at the edge of the rock face. Once you have taken in the sights it's time to push on North East for another kilometre to the trig point marking the summit of the devil. In my opinion this is the jewel in North Tipperary's crown.
