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.

A dank cloudy morning in Belfast didn't promise well for a climb up Commedagh. However by the time I reached Newcastle the sun was splitting the trees. Up the Glen River track along with seemingly half the population of the country - they were heading for Donard. Not one followed yours truly up the track to Commedagh. Depressed at the litter on the lower reaches of the track. Having just come back from the French section of the Route of St James where I saw 4 pieces of litter in 260km - I kid you not. The Glen track had 4 times this amount in the first hundred metres. Views from the top of Commedagh over Ben Crom. Decided I couldn't stop there and moved on over Corragh and Slievenaglogh and down to the Hare's Gap. Back down the Trassey Track admiring the tiny Tormentil flowers occasionally. Never knew what they were before but I had my plant book with me. Past a shepherd whistling orders to his dog and down the Mourne Way past a King's Grave and the dark pools of the Shimna down to Newcastle and a delicious outdoor pint in O'Hare's beergarden looking up to the hills. Not a bad day. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/63/comment/2815/
