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 838th highest place in Ireland. Camlough Mountain is the second highest point in county Armagh.

I parked at J05415 23936 D, the southern start of the forest road. This is still gated off, so as tsunami says, it's a peaceful walk up to the summit. I elected to visit the telecom masts by taking the gravel track left off the main road at the summit at J05584 24614 E, near the car park marked on the OS map. From the telecom masts it's a fairly straightforward cross-country, heather tramp over to the summit of Camlough proper. I can only echo the other comments in that it's easy to see why the army chose this place to keep an eye on things: there are great 360-degree panoramas to be had.Up and down is an easy 5.6 km, so an hour and a half is plenty of time.
