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.

The summit and surrounds of Black Mountain suffer visually from a number of things. The photo shows the telecommunications tower – to the right of the picture there is also a TV mast. The left of the picture shows a car which was burnt out . When I visited in Feb 2004 there were at least another 6 burnt out cars near the summit, one still smouldering right beside a forestry plantation. Attempts have been made by Louth County Council to limit damage by off-road vehicles which is also prevalent. Nevertheless this must be one of the most environmentally impoverished 500m summits in Ireland. It may be difficult to control due to the proximity of the summit to the main Dublin-Belfast road and the Border which is about 1500m away.

There is a megalithic cairn at the top known as Clermont Carn, just beyond the towers in the picture. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/434/comment/860/
