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 822nd highest place in Ireland.

Nice Views.

Because of my visit to nearby Knocknafaughy I ascended this hill on the opposite side to Mark which, although steep, is not as steep as the ascent from the R336 road. If you wish you can park at L92886 58759 starC and follow the farm track to the base of the hill. No cairn exists at the summit so, to the previous comment, your memory is still good.
