Notes for Slieve Main (also on Inishowen) at logainm.ie indicate that this is from Ir. An Sliabh Mín, not *Sliabh Meáin, as one might expect. It therefore seems likely that this name also includes the adjective mín, 'smooth'.   Crockmain is the 693rd highest place in Ireland.

A Great Viewpoint
by Aidy  28 Mar 2017
The final summit of a day spent walking from Mamore Gap over Croaghcarragh and Urris Hills, back to the gap, then up to Mamore Hill and this peak. I had planned to continue to Raghtin More, but the weather was changing, and I decided to save it for another day. The decision was made easier by the fact that I was surprisingly tired by such low summits, but there had been some steep slopes, and several minor summits with a lot more up and down than I expected. Its nice to have a reason to come back to this little group of hills however as I thought they made for great walking and stunning views. I took a slightly different route back, for variety, following a track on the south west of the hill out to the road on the northern side of Mamore Gap.
