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 624th highest place in Ireland.

A lovely shortish walk with great views at the top. We strayed to the right of the path though and ended up in a large field with beware of the bull sign. No sign of the bull. I think I scared him off.
It was not too easy to find the carpark. Its not as well signed as you might think but the drive around the Tipperary countryside is great anyway if you get lost :) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/513/comment/3274/
