The name of Torc Mountain, like Mount Eagle and the Wolf's Step on the Dingle Peninsula, reminds us of a wild animal once common in the forests of Ireland. Wild boar is significant in Celtic mythology, being depicted on Celtic artefacts found in continental Europe, Ireland and Britain. It represents physical strength and heroic fighting skills.
Torc Mountain is the 456th highest summit in Ireland. Torc Mountain is the most northerly summit in the Mangerton area. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/383/
