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.

"Strictly No Access"
by TommyMc  4 Feb 2020
The Longford Tourism page on facebook has informed me that the summit trig pillar is on private land and that public access is prohibited. Not good considering it's a County High Point. I can't understand how the entire track from the road to the trig pillar isn't classified as an existing right of way. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/20748/
