Bedrock type: Granite granophyre, (Mourne Mountains granite)

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 65th highest in Ireland. Slieve Commedagh is the second highest point in county Down.

Up here again last Tuesday 30/12/03. Parked in Donard Park, then up the Glen River valley. sleet turned to snow at the col. the steps were frozen solid and would have made a trecherous descent route, so we made for Shan Slieve, past the top of the pot of Legawherry (dangerous in v.poor/dark conditions), then descended back to the track in a partial whiteout using the compass. Very wet return down the Glen River. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/63/comment/715/
