This is one of a number of Donegal hill names in which the element cró (which normally means 'a hollow' or 'a sheep-pen') has apparently become confused with cruach ('stack').   Cronamuck is the 756th highest place in Ireland.

As tough as they come.
by Colin Murphy  8 May 2023
As tough a Carn as possible given its relative remoteness. Our journey from the SW was an exhausting 17km and over 7 hours (see track 4871). The shot shows Cronamuck on the left and Meenanea on the right taken from the Croaghbarnes ridge. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/638/comment/23943/
