The name of Torc Mountain, like Mount Eagle and the Wolf's Step on the Dingle Peninsula, reminds us of a wild animal once common in the forests of Ireland. Wild boar is significant in Celtic mythology, being depicted on Celtic artefacts found in continental Europe, Ireland and Britain. It represents physical strength and heroic fighting skills.   Torc Mountain is the 457th highest summit in Ireland. Torc Mountain is the most northerly summit in the Mangerton area.

Well-defined rocky top
by Colin Murphy  14 Sep 2014
Torc summit is well defined but unmarked by a cairn or trig pillar. The highest point is this craggy rock. Great views in all directions. It is also just a 15 minute walk to Torc West Top, which is just a slight detour from the route down. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/383/comment/17676/
