Easy access to a 700 metre summit
Short Summary created by wicklore,  17 Oct 2010
The Table Track, which runs from the end of the Glenmalure Valley, rises to 694 metres altitude, and passes within a few hundred metres of the summit of Table Mountain. This gives easy access to this high Wicklow hill. The Table Track was used over the years as an access route between Glen of Imaal and Glenmalure, and facilitated many a rebel moving between the Glens to avoid capture.
Starting at the carpark at T06617 94163 A , walk across the ford, getting your feet wet. (as of October 2010 the nearby footbridge is destroyed following heavy rain, floods and landslides in the Glenmalure Valley. If the river is too high the ford will be impassable to either foot or vehicle traffic, but there is no real way of knowing until you get there)
Once across the ford, follow the Coillte track for several kilometers higher into the valley until you reach a junction at T03458 96141 B which heads up over open bog. This bog track, interspersed with short pieces of wooden boardwalk over the worst boggy sections, leads to the col between Table Mountain and Camenabologue at T02085 96698 C . Table Mountain is a 10 minute walk north over heather and bog. It is a very unexciting summit, with very little climb from the col. Total length from carpark to summit is 6.5 kms.
Views from Table Mountain are extensive, including the three highest Wicklow Mountains - Lugnaquilia, Tonelagee and Mullaghcleevaun - as well as the elusive Three Lakes, Turlough Hill and dozens of other Wicklow summits. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/109/comment/4869/

padodes on Table Mountain, 2010
by padodes  22 Mar 2010
Table may be a mountain you cross on your way to somewhere else (cairn on the flat top at T 0191 9734 D), but it has its own little secrets if you care to look for them. One happens to be the wreck of a light aircraft on its lower eastern slope at T 0273 9729 E, almost in the hollow between Table and Conavalla. Together with the spot where a plane came down on Corrigasleggaun in 1992 with the loss of two lives, and another spot where a similar accident took place on Corriebracks in 2008 with the loss of four, this one forms part of a kind of Bermuda Triangle (at least in my fancy) on the SW side of the Wicklow massif. Unlike the two other crashes that are well documented, little seems to be known about the one on Table. I have never been able to find a record of it. (The list given by the Air Accident Investigation Unit of the Department of Transport only goes back to 1996.) When did it happen? What were the circumstances? Was there a loss of life? Considering that not even the engine was winched away for investigation, as would occur in more recent times, the accident must go back quite a number of years; and judging by the tortured strips of fuselage that remain, the landing cannot have been a gentle one. The terrain is rough and remote in this area and any survivor would have needed at the very least, in my reckoning, an hour of vigorous walking to reach the nearest human habitation in Glenmalure.

Picture: The Provost Engine
The Provost wreckage
by Townie  21 Jun 2010
I climbed Table Mountain with the a view to examining the aircraft wreck on the NE slope of the mountain. I know a little bit about aeroplanes so here goes. The Engine is 9 cylinder Alvis Leonidas rotary engine. This type of engine powered the Irish Air Corp Provost aeroplanes which were in service from the mid fifties. This is the remaining wreckage of a Provost which crashed there in March 1957. The pilot who was 21 died shortly after the crash. The accident is featured in the Irish Times of 8th March 1957. Please spare a thought for the unfortunate pilot should you visit the mountain. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/109/comment/5892/

Further information on the air accident
by malonesean  12 Apr 2012
The aircraft was flown by a lt. Patrick Leo O'Connor. It crashed in bad weather on March 7th 1957. His family visited the site in September 2010 to place a plaque in his honour. Details of the visit were published in the Roscommon Herald, October 5th 2010. He was buried on his 21st birthday. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/109/comment/6767/

Being rather flat, it's quite hard to discern the summit of Table Mountain. Nearby Three Lakes (though I only counted two!) makes a nice spot for lunch. The dreaded quad bikers are sometimes active in this area - watch your step! Picture shows the summit taken from the track up from Baravore. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/109/comment/643/
