The River Lagan rises on the northern slopes of Slieve Croob. The three parishes of Magherahamlet, Kilmegan and Drumgooland converge on the summit, which has excellent panoramic views, including a particularly fine view of the northern peaks in the Mourne Mountains. Until the mid-20th century, there was a tradition of climbing the mountain on Blaeberry Sunday at the end of July or beginning of August. This is clearly a survival of a Lughnasa tradition [see MacNeill, 155-56]. The summit cairn is locally known as the Twelve Cairns, but this seems to be a relatively modern name arising from damage causing the break-up of a single cairn into several smaller heaps.   Slieve Croob is the 462nd highest summit in Ireland. Slieve Croob is the most northerly summit in the Mourne Mountains area.

Slieve Croob is a northern outlier of older “Newry” granite, quite distinct in origin from the main Mournes. This picture shows its southern side on a wintery December day.

It appears that there may well be a relatively small wind farm built on the side or top of Slieve Croob so this view may not stay this way.

If you are interested in visiting the summit there is good access from the east side. You can use the 1:25k map of the area, available from the OSNI. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/388/comment/792/
