This name has been misleadingly anglicised as if it contained the element cruach, 'stack'. It actually contains cró, 'sheep-pen', and it seems that the name has been transferred from a pen to the hill on which it was situated.   An Cró Mór is the 1171th highest place in Ireland.

A harsh place with a harsh past
by TommyV  12 Jun 2019
The Great Blasket Island was abandoned in the 1950's but in recent times some of the families have done up some of the cottages on the island and there is a couple who are now running a cafe and hostel (without electricity). We had to get a dingy out to the main boat which then crossed the choppy Blasket Sound before getting on the dingy again to get dropped on the island. The Eastern side of the island contains the old village with the cottage ruins and also the beach which I believe contains the largest seal colony in Ireland. Exploring this part of the island and taking in the free historical tour is what most visitors will do. For the more fool hardy it's possible to explore the baron Western side of the island taking in Croaghmore. A great day out.....if the weather permits.
