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 620th highest place in Ireland.

This is a panorama of Devilsbit mountain plateau taken from Little Rock the citadel like bump to the SW of the main summit. Some other details from the picture (well they were more visible on the original large size) The safe gully down from the main summit is just to the left of the shiny light fitting centre of picture. The slight rise at the left skyline is Benduff. Just before the left rise to the plateau and on the skyline you would be able to see the telecoms towers on Kilduff.
