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.

After a forest is clear felled the briars move back in anxious to make up for the time lost in the shade of the forest. The newly planted trees gradually grow up and compete with the briars making the plantation virtually impassable. This is the state of the summit of Cullenagh. Follow the advice given below and you will get to about 100 metres from the top. Then the 'fun' begins. I recommend a machete.
Alas, the views from the top are quickly disappearing behind the trees. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/936/comment/6703/
