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.

This summit completely exceeded my expectations. Views of the surrounding area is second to none. If it was a bit less misty and cloud cover, perhaps Keeper Hill would be more prominent. The route from Devil's bit to Little Rock is a bit tricky (see Simon's walk description) but do ascend Little Rock if you fancy a little afternoon scramble (nothing hard).
