The name Clomantagh Hill is given by Eoghan Ó Ceallaigh in Cois Feoire. The word mantach is usually applied to teeth. It means 'gummy' or 'gaptoothed'. It appears to be Brittonic due to the retention of -ant-, as this regularly develops to -éad- in modern Irish. Clomantagh is a parish in the barony of Crannagh. The Irish form of this name is An Chloch Mhantach [logainm.ie].   Clomantagh Hill is the 1059th highest place in Ireland.

Eamonoc's directions are spot on on but there is an obvious track made by a tractor so following this will also take you close to the summit. It's a lovely little walk but very obviously on farmland so the slight worry about running into an angry farmer is the only downside. Obvious signs of livestock all over this hill but none on it the day we visited. I suggest visiting in the Winter season when there is less likely to be livestock on the hill.
