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.

The middle sister - Ballincurra
by YoungJohn  26 Apr 2010
On Tuesday the 20th April 2010 my trusty friend and I set forth. We parked as Peterturner recommends at the forestry entrance west of Templederry. We headed left and kept going up hill past a grove of deciduous tress, either maple or sycamore, before heading left and uphill between two 'forests'. We found an old wall or ditch which we followed up to the summit. A large cairn marks the summit. The views were blighted by a haze(or maybe volcano ash from Iceland!) but the mighty Keeper and Silvermines were clear to be seen as were the Arra Mountains overlooking Lough Derg. The Devilsbit range were close by with Knockanora resplendent in the sunlight. The Slieve Ardagh Hills were quite clear but the Slieve Blooms were mostly blocked except for Arderin. The cairn offered a fine seat and the tea was too good (Why is tea on mountain tops so tasty?). Nenagh and Cloughjordan were crystal clear and Templederry touchable (nearly). A fine walk on a fine day with an old friend what could be better. The legs were tested and if we had cut left before the grove of deciduous trees a shorter route was available but what the heck. The middle of the three sister 'hills' did not disappoint. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/814/comment/4653/
