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 1061th highest place in Ireland.

jackill on Clomantagh Hill, 2010
by jackill  11 Feb 2010
I parked at the co-ordinates provided by oldsoldier (which is a coillte access road despite my initial concerns that it was a farm roadway) and took a quick 15 minute walk hugging the forest edge across a most unusual and unexpected karst landscape. Exposed weathered limestone, rough hillocks, hollows and hump backed, stunted trees leaning south all give this hill its gap-toothed name.Hop the stone wall, built with no mortar, at the roofless house and then follow the wall to the summit. The trig bolt is set in a square of concrete on top of a megalithic tomb. An extract from Lewis Topographical Dictionary, 1837 says the following "On the summit of Clomanto hill is circular mound of stones, 87 paces in circumference, enclosed by a circular barrier of stones, including several acres, approaching nearest to the mound on the east. Part of this circle has been destroyed; the name 'Cloghman-Ta,' signifying in the Irish language the "stone of God," is sufficiently indicative of the use to which this place was applied" A little bit differant then to the MViews name explanation. All together though both explanations suit a special and unusual little hill. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/902/comment/4358/
