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 456th highest summit in Ireland. Torc Mountain is the most northerly summit in the Mangerton area.

Walking the Old kenmare this december in very squally weather we debated staying in the "hut" to shelter but it sounded worse than it was. Why do some "walkers" leave behind their debris ? If they are interested enough to be out on such a walk surely they can carry home their yogurt pots.We had parked the Kenmare side and met a lot of groups wading through the deep waters in very unsuitable attire! We made it back just at sunset ( a late start!) and instead of ascending Torc tooks some pics instead. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/383/comment/2115/
