Re County High Points
paulocon mentions that the County Top list in www.simonstewart.ie differs from the County Top list that Paul Clements describes in his book 'The Height of Nonsense'

I've checked both lists and there are three differences as follows:

Leitrim

SimonStewart - Truskmore

Paul Clements - Slieve Anierin

Monaghan

Simon Stewart - Slieve Beagh East

Paul Clements - Eshnabrack

Tyrone

Simon Stewart - Sawel

Paul Clements - Mullaclogha

It must be said that Paul Clements didn't take a very scientific approach to working out the high points - he enjoyed asking everyone he met where they thought the high point of their county was! He makes an interesting point that the summit of Slieve Beagh actually lies in Fermanagh and that if you come across the border into Monaghan "we find a point called Eshnabrack at 1190 feet" (362.7 metres) which is the highest point in Monaghan.

I would tend to stick with the list on simonstewart.ie. Apparently Mountainviews will soon have the County Tops displayed too which i think will really open up the debate!

Topped Mountain: Short & simple

A simple little Binnion to climb (the name Topped 'Mountain' is a bit of a stretch). A gravel path & steps from a carpark will see you reach the top in about 15 minutes, and you won't even need yo...

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy a week ago.
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top.
