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.

A bit of the Devil
Short Summary created by jackill,  28 Feb 2014
Park at the forest entrance S04317 73045 A, room for 5 cars. Go through the forest entrance and follow the wide roadway upwards. At S04990 73714 B turn right and follow the track as far as Cardens folly at S05594 73605 C. Turn left uphill past the grotto to gain gap between little rock and the summit rock. Follow the muddy track going right to the gap in the rock for any easy ascent to the top of the rock outcrop. The summit trig is approx 450 meters to your left. You can descend by the same route or by taking the path from little rock (starting at S05373 73823 D) for an easy variation. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/513/comment/5272/
