The highest point on Horn Head. The Metrical Dindsenchas contains a reference to Sliab Irguill, which the editor Edward Gwynn identifies with Horn Head, so it be an old name for Croaghnamaddy or may have referred to all the upland on Horn Head. For origin of name, see Ganiamore re the name Sliab Guill. There is another Croaghnamaddy SW of Dungloe.   Croaghnamaddy is the third highest hill in the Donegal North area and the 1283th highest in Ireland. Croaghnamaddy is the most westerly summit in the Donegal North area.
