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 621st highest place in Ireland.

There are several starting points for the climb. For those not familiar with the area there are signs from the Borrisoleigh to Templemore Road. These lead to a carpark and a steepish walk up a grassy field to a fenced off stone tower. You also pass a well with a religious grotto.
The final ascent to the cross is a bit of a scramble up the rocks. The cross at the top is floodlight at night. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/513/comment/2978/
