Tim Robinson suggests roighne is righin, 'tough or stubborn', (TR, 103) but it seems more likely that it is simply roighne, 'the best part', perhaps a praise-name for an old land division rather than the hill itself.   Roighne Mhór is the 815th highest place in Ireland.

Nice Views.

Because of my visit to near by Knocknafaughy i ascended this hill on the opposite side to Mark, although steep not as steep as the accent from the R336 road. If you wish you can park at L9288658759 B and follow the farm tract to the base of the hill. No cairn exists at the summit so to the previous comment your memory is still good.
