Truskmore SE Top – just a short walk from the main summit in Sligo. Highest point in Leitrim - not a lot more to say about it. It certainly has more character than Slieve Beagh SE in Monaghan, which must rate as one of the least impressive county tops. However, if Truskmore SE was not the high point of Leitrim, I doubt if it would be marked in any way. I expect there are nice views from it, but I wasn’t to know due to the weather when I visited.
