Cullenagh Mountain is the highest of a group known as the Slieve Lough Hills or Dysart Hills. On the northern edge of this range is the Pass of the Plumes (Ir. Bearna na gCleití), site of a famous battle in 1599, in which the O'Moores of Leix routed the forces of the Earl of Essex.   Cullenagh Mountain is the 1108th highest summit in Ireland.

I followed waldobk's instructions to reach the summit from the end of the road near Ballyroan. Don't worry if your GPS tells you that you're starting to head away from the summit, and fear not that the track starts getting rougher. Follow the instructions and you'll get there in the end. The summit are of Cullenagh has been planted, so it won't be long before the views are obscured by thick tree growth. Enjoy while you can! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/936/comment/6065/
