The mound on the top called "Carn Thiernagh" is reputed to date as far back as the Bronze Age approx 3,000 years old. Also it is claimed that a Druid called Mogh Ruith is buried there. The remains of a fort are visible on the summit which dates back to the Iron Age. From the top of the summit you can see for miles in every direction so not hard to understand why it was of such importance.
However the reason the cross was erected was to signify the change from Druidism to Christianity - it was erected around 1933.
