Not much to commend it !
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  23 May 2014
Park at a forestry entrance off a minor road at J0775814196 A. Follow the track N and then NNE gently uphill for about 1km to a track junction J0774015189 B. Take the track turning off sharply S and continue up to J0755414856 C. A little further along look for a feint track on the right going up the steep bank into the trees. (This, as off 16 May 2014 was just before coming to a large fallen tree across the main track, but passable ). Go up due W through the trees for about 150 metres to gain rough but open ground. The unmarked high point of the hill lies a short distance further along. to avoid going into the trees continue along the forest track to its end in open ground before striking out N over rough vegitation of waist high grass, heather and gorse for some 250 metres to the top. There is a fine view N to Slieve Gullion and another one S to Dundalk Bay. These apart there is not much to commend a climb of this hill.

Gorse brambles, bracken and heather at top
by Fergalh  Wed 9 Oct
Cross the motorway at Ravensdale bridge and drive towards the forest until you get to an entrance at J07965 14417 D. Park here and proceed up the track. At the junction turn left. Pass the first fallen tree and at next fallen tree(s) proceed in a SSW direction uphill until the top is visible. The top here has much vegetation and would be best climbed in winter when it has died back. No trees at the top and the view is wonderful of south Armagh.

Feede me Seymour, Feede me Now!

This small hill can be a little shop of horrors, but only really for a very short stretch towards the top, as has already been pointed out in the summary! In truth this hill can be a small treat, but if you have visited it and have not made a visit to it’s excellently preserved souterrain then you have missed the hidden gem that is offered by the walk here. It may be derided by some on this site, but Feede not only offers this, but also has a total of 10km of forest track which are ideal for an evening walk to many locals.

The souterrain on Feede is an excellent example of this early Christian antiquity. Although the county of Louth (and particularly north of the river Fane) has the highest incidence of these structures within the country, this is the best example I have been in during my lifetime. It can be easily accessed and is just off the forest track at approximately J0783415546 E, watch out for the padding on the fence, the entrance is marked by a couple of sycamore sticks. You can crawl in (bring your torch), but once in this man made cave opens up and extends back for maybe 100 metres, with some off shoots. It goes without saying that if you are claustrophobic then this will not be for you, but if you have a childish sense of adventure, then it most certainly will be, enjoy!

My geology would not be the sharpest, but to the best of my estimation this hill would be unique in the mountainviews list for this area also. By my estimation this hill would be part of the Ring of Gullion and as such, the only one that falls within the county of Louth rather than Armagh. But I will admit that I am very much open to correction on this point!

Finally, if you wish to extend your low level walk on this lovely little hill then there is an alternative approach through the graveyard, behind the church at the bottom of “Jonesborough Hill”! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1242/comment/17525/
