Claude Wall [Mountaineering in Ireland] describes the "Cuailgne Mountains" as follows: "This grand little range extends for about ten miles along the southern shore of the Newry river and Carlingford Lough". His walk starts on Anglesey Mountain and continues to Carlingford town (or actually beyond to Barnanave and Grange 312m). We can agree with him that "There is no real climbing in this area, the scene of much of the epic of the Tain Bo Cuailgne and rich in prehistoric monuments."

Most of the route has been described in walk 75, "Traverse of the Cooleys" maintained by ahendroff. Our photo shows the small cairned summit and stone littered area nearby. Highest and central on the skyline is Slieve Foye with the ridge containing the Ravens Rock and the Foxes Rock stretching towards us and lowering to the road at Windy Gap. The people are standing around the summit of Anglesey Mountain, such as it is. Over their heads on the skyline is Carrickrawor also part of the traverse of the Cooleys.

There are also views towards Rostrevor and Warrenpoint which are hinted at by eflanaga's pic. The sky was pretty dramatic that day which was some compensation for the drenching it gave us earlier. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/699/comment/3202/
