As on Slieve Meelmore, there is a tower near the summit of Slieve Commedagh. On the southern side, at the head of the Annalong Valley, is a spectacular group of granite tors known as 'the Castles'. These can be appreciated from the Brandy Pad, a track once used by smugglers. During the 18th Century the Mourne Mountains were notorious for smuggling commodities such as wine, silk, tobacco, tea and brandy, mainly from Britain. The cargo would be brought ashore under the cover of darkness and taken over the mountains to Hilltown and the surrounding areas.   Slieve Commedagh is the second highest mountain in the Mourne Mountains area and the 64th highest in Ireland. Slieve Commedagh is the second highest point in county Down.

Picture below shows the first walk of the new Navan hillwalking club (no offical name yet) ,on top of Commedagh .We climbed Donard first , from the carpark , through the forest and up by the glen river.Came back down to the col and followed the brandy pad to see the castles . From there we went to meet the wall again on the other side of Commedagh and followed it to the summit . It's a nice way to climb Commedagh as you get to see the Annalong valley in its entirety .From the summit we headed back down ,via Shan Slieve, towards the forest with great views of Donard on the way. An enjoyable walk for our first one as a club . Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/63/comment/1493/
