Grogán may be a variant of gruagán/grógán. This can mean a pyramidal heap of turf-sods set on end to dry, or alternatively a hard patch of land [Dinneen]. The second meaning is probably the appropriate one, as this rare element is probably connected with Welsh grug ‘heather’, of which the usual Irish equivalent is fraoch. The same word also appears in An Grogán Beag and An Grogán Carrach, two neighbouring hills. See also Gruggandoo in the Mournes.
An Grogán Mór is the 708th highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/595/
