This is the higher of two peaks in the Mourne Mountains called Slievenaglogh, the other being situated further south, facing Slieve Binnian across the Silent Valley. This peak is east of Hare's Gap. On the western flanks is a huge granite boulder with a scooped-out face so that it resembles a giant's seat (David Kirk, 'The Mountains of Mourne - A Celebration of a Place Apart', p. 121).   Slievenaglogh is the 322nd highest place in Ireland.

Diamonds... what diamonds?

When your legs are tired, the steps leading from Hare's Gap up to Sleivenaglogh really can be very unforgiving. I was more than glad to step aside to let a man and his son pass and was absolutely delighted to stop and have a chat as the man revealed his deep-held physological fear of Bearnagh after he had come to an abrupt stop halfway up it's relentless slopes on a previous assault. Seems like we all have our own particular demons!
Slievenaglogh is a pretty unassuming mountain - I even somehow managed to miss the Diamond Rocks as I was busy concentrating on the bigger fish called Commedagh and Donard that lay ahead. The summit is adorned by a handy wee cairn from which the way ahead to Commedagh can be studied. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/4729/
