This is the highest point in Slieve Margy. The name Clogrennan Hill does not appear on OS maps but is confirmed by sources such as Richard Griffith's Geological and Mining Report on the Leinster Coal District (1814), which states that the River Dinan has its source near the summit of Clogrennan-Hill. Clogrenan is a townland straddling the Laois/Carlow border and also a district. On the summit plateau is also Rossmore Bog, Rossmore being a townland in the parish of Killeshin, barony of Slievemargy. This hill appears to be the location of Temair Mairge (the Tara of Margy) mentioned in Lebor na hUidre and the Yellow Book of Lecan.   Clogrennan Hill is the 1081th highest place in Ireland.

24 May 2013, Having earlier climbed, Croughan and Greenoge in the Blackstairs it was off to see the An post Ras which had a King of the Mts challenge on the road at S669 737 At (point A) beside the communications instillation . When all cyclists passed the road was safely crossed plus two grassy fields, no problem finding trig point. Weather was great and there were fantastic views towards the Wicklow and Blackstairsmts.
