An undistinguished County Top
by Harry Goodman  9 Aug 2016
On a walk to Slieve Beagh (Doocarn) in July 2006 I walked out over spot height 365m shown as Eshbrack on the OSI Map Sheet 28A. I assumed this was also Slieve Beagh SE top and thought I had walked over the highest point in Monaghan. It was only after I was back home that I realised that Slieve Beagh South East Top (Eshbrack), as shown by the MV reference, was not this spot height but a small hummock some 800 metres further to the NE!! As I was doing the County Tops at the time I re-visited the area about a month later and walked out to Slieve Beagh SE Top the highest point in Monaghan. I started at a gate across a minor road at H554415 starB and followed a track up through Barratitoppy Upper to fork then bear left. At the end of the track I went NW over spot height 365m Eshbrack and then continued over the bleak moorland to a peaty hummock which is the highest point in Co. Monaghan, overlooking little Lough Sallagh. I returned by the outward route. The moral in this tale, always check your references and do not commit to memory!!! Since first writing this comment the accuracy of the MV grid reference for this top has been questioned by wicklore and three5four0. In particular it has been pointed out that using OSNI Sheet 18 leaves the mv grid ref below the 370m contour. This certainly is the case reading Sheet but if the reference is traced on OSI Sheet 28A there is a distinct ring contour for 370m which extends further N than that on OSNI Sheet 18. Using Sheet 28A may allow the listed mv grid ref to fall just on the N tip of the contour and, I assume, allowing for a margin of error, indicate they could lie within same. As to the question of accuracy of the mv grid ref hopefully this can be checked with a GPS(s) and amended if necessary. Certainly as pointed out by wicklore an accurate reference would be necessary to find this remote and undistinguished high point in poor weather. This said, in clear conditions, the peaty hummock marking the high point is quite distinct and even the most fastidious walker would not have to tramp around too much to have satisfied her/himself that the top had been covered. Having read the 06/2010 Newsletter I am pleased to note that an accurate GPS reading, differing somewhat from the original reference, has now been posted on the site and should serve those going in search of Monaghan's highest point very well indeed, whichever map is used.
