The gap between Ballincurra Hill and Cooneen Hill is known as Ormond Stile (sometimes Ormond Style). It is mentioned by John O'Donovan as the northern limit of Sliabh Eibhlinne (Slieve Felim), and he calls it Céim Urmhumhain, 'the step of Ormond'. It is on the southern boundary of the barony of Upper Ormond.   Ballincurra Hill is the 926th highest summit in Ireland.

Ballincurra summit is easy to reach from forest entrance on road west of Templederry r924 692 . Make ascending zig zags choosing forest paths that ascend and you won't go wrong. There has been much recent felling both here and on its neighbour Cooneen Hill. The summit has a very small hillfort (as does another neighbour Knockadigeen) and there are some wonderfully bucolic views to be had although Keeper Hill is less viewable than on Cooneen Hill. Allow 1 hour to reach the summit from point A. There is also a small spur from Ballincurra with a forest track ringing it which would make for a more substantial walk in the area.
