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 1175th highest place in Ireland.

Heres a photo of the track out to Slievedonagh, where you follow its ridge out to An Cro Mors summit. I think that would be Tearaght Island on the right. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/963/comment/6504/
