There are two cairns at the summit. Clann Aodha were a sept of the O'Farrells according to Rev. Joseph MacGivney. He gives Sliabh Cairbré as the earlier name of the hill.   Corn Hill is the 1212th highest place in Ireland. Corn Hill is the second most westerly summit in the North East Midlands area. Corn Hill is the highest point in county Longford.

Picture: The new pathway
 
New Pathway around the Summit
by TommyMc  10 Nov 2018
A new pathway around the summit has been installed over the summer.

Walkers are now met with a locked gate within circa 50 yards of the masts and trig point, but a new and quite attractive pathway to the left leads around the perimeter of the summit area and leads to another, unlocked, gate which gives access to the summit proper.

Somewhat bizarrely, the visitor is still greeted with a misleading "No unauthorised persons beyond this point" sign at the gate at the foot of the access road. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/20203/
