Corblonog (Irish: Corr Bhlonaige, meaning "round hill of the fat/lard") is a townland in the north of County Monaghan in Ireland, to the east of the townland of Sheskin in the parish of Tydavnet.

During the late 19th century, and during the Irish famine, most of the townland, if not all, was owned by the Williamson family. A hill in Corblonog, still carries the name Porridge Hill, as it was the location that the Williamsons provide gruel to those who needed it during the famine. The prefix Cor-, as found in this townland's name, typically refers to small rounded hill, and likely to refer to the same hill as porridge hill, being the only prominent hill in this small townland.
