This peak offers a fine view north to Slieve Gullion and its satellites, and south to County Louth, but access is difficult due to dense undergrowth. A group of stones beside the triangulation pillar on the summit may be the Bohil Breaga of Tiffcrum (i.e. the false lad or shepherd) referred to by Michael J. Murphy in his book 'Mountain Year' (p. 40).   Tievecrom is the 1243th highest summit in Ireland.

Do it now before the undergrowth returns!

I'll preface this comment by saying that I visited Tievecrom in April - things might be much more difficult later in summer!

Having read the comments from other contributors, it was with much trepidation that I approached Tievecrom. I used the access noted by wicklore. The rough area mentioned for parking has now been blocked off, but there's still space for a couple of cars. Once on the track in the forest proper, I headed up to the right at J021 144 C, where a faint track is visible. Following this track and my nose, I got to within 60 metres of the summit area without too much difficulty from undergrowth. The walk in the woods, with a bed of clover underfoot, is almost pleasant! The last 60 metres or so were a bit trickier, but much easier than the hell that is Barrinsky! This approach requires a bit of scrambling - remember which point you came up onto the summit area.

Regarding dogs - too small and they'll get lost in the undergrowth, too big and you'll have difficulty lifting him/her over the second gate mentioned in wicklore's post. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/989/comment/6304/
