Also known as Black Mountain [OSI]. The more common name, Clermont Carn, appeared on the old ½ map. This name records the association with Lord Clermont of Ravensdale, whose residence was Ravensdale Park in the early 19th century.   Clermont Carn is the 530th highest summit in Ireland.

JB Whittow [Geology and Scenery in Ireland 1974] makes the point that from the Cooleys the Mournes appear differently to other views. “Slieve Donard (2,796 feet), does not dominate the remainder of the peaks to quite the same extent as it does when seen from Castlewellan or Newcastle, whilst the impressive summit of Slieve Binnian (2,449) can now be appreciated.” He went on to describe the “so-called Kingdom of Mourne which lies between the mountain summits and the sea” to the south of the High Mournes. Some of this area can be seen to the left of the picture. The water in front of this area is Carlingford Lough leading out to the Irish Sea, centre. On the skyline to the right is Slieve Foye, further east on the Cooley Peninsula.
The green mound directly in front of the camera is Clermont Carn. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/434/comment/859/
