Hen Mountain is the lower neighbour of Cock Mountain. Other peaks in the area named after birds are Eagle Mountain and Pigeon Rock Mountain. The tors on Hen Mountain offer some scope for rock climbing. The Glack is a saddle between Cock Mountain and Hen Mountain. Ir. glac/glaic denotes the grasp of a clutching hand or the gap and is one of many anatomical terms applied to the Irish landscape.   Hen Mountain is the 1050th highest place in Ireland.

A little hill with some personality.
by David-Guenot  16 Nov 2016
Hen Mountain in autumn colours offers an amazing contrast with the green fields behind. This pic was taken on 13. November this year from the upper slopes of Cock Mountain SW Top. No time to visit it this time, but I have put this hill on my bucket list for one of my next trips to the Mournes, as it seems to be worth exploring its tors !!
