There is a hillfort on summit known as the round O [PNCW]. MacNeill (235) also mentions three wells on its lower slopes named Tobernasleiga, Tobergorey and Tobersool. Price interprets Tinoran as Tigh an Odhráin, without explaining the offending presence of the article before a personal name (Odhrán). More likely is that the n comes from the urú caused by teach, which was a neuter noun in Old Irish.
Tinoran Hill is the 1129th highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/946/
