Mount Leinster is not the highest peak in the province of Leinster. That distinction belongs to Lugnaquillia, but Mount Leinster is the highest outside Wicklow. Due to the transmitter mast, there is a road to the top. There is also a substantial cairn on summit. On the saddle connecting to Slievebawn is a stone alignment called the Nine Stones (though there are actually ten).   Mount Leinster is the highest mountain in the Blackstairs Mountains area and the 44th highest in Ireland. Mount Leinster is the highest point in county Carlow and also the highest in Wexford.

MickHanney on Mount Leinster, 2008
by MickHanney  6 Jul 2008
Not the best day for it - Heavy rain showers and the summit in cloud, but ran up Mount Leinster from S 866 504 H on the ridge from Black Mountain. Conditions underfoot were fairly dreadful. Muddy, boggy and wet, but thats all part of the fun. Lots of evidence of quad bikes on the mountain - deep scars on lots of the tracks tell that story.. Bumped into a couple of hardy walkers not put off by the conditions. They probalby got a shock seeing 2 runners on the mountain. Total running time aprox 90 mins. 13kms all in. Looking forward to doing it again in better weather. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/44/comment/3207/
