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 1204th highest place in Ireland. Corn Hill is the highest point in county Longford.

No escape from the modern world
by csd  9 May 2010
Despite its modest elevation, Corn Hill has one of the largest TV/telecommunications installations adorning its summit I've seen on this island. The forestry is beginning to encroach on the view from the top, and the constant drone of the air conditoners in the service building take away from the attraction of this summit, but at least it's very easily gained! The presence of such a large telecomms installation means that I'm typing this as I sit beside the summit cairn, with a good 3G signal to speed the upload of the photo I've just taken! Is this MV's first 'live on the scene' comment? :) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/4697/
