Summit situated in the townland of Cross. Had an army base on the summit, dismantled around 2001. The second element of Slieve Girkin is suggestive of cuircín, 'crest' or 'comb', which would fit well with the crinkly appearance of the summit when seen from Camlough, but no Irish forms have been found to confirm this.   Camlough Mountain is the 761st highest summit in Ireland. Camlough Mountain is the second highest point in county Armagh.

Paths to the summit
by eejaymm  8 May 2017
We started at the same spot *A as mentioned previously. This was a lovely walk in beautiful sunshine and we quickly reached the masts *B. Going round to the right side of the compound the track can now be easily seen as it seems to have had a lot of quad activity on it. Half way up the final summit peak the path reaches a T junction - turn right here! we went left but still had no problems but path peters out! Amazing views from the top on such a beautiful day! on leaving you can see yellow arrows painted on rocks and yellow tape on various posts and more arrows on rocks which lead you down a more defined path to join the other "quad" track. Unfortunately on way up you can't see these! At the top we met several locals who just walked up the northern flank of the mountain. Took me 90mins to get to the summit with rucksack full of radio gear and having had a knee replacement! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/724/comment/18915/
