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.

This Slievenaglogh has a namesake west of the Silent Valley which although does not reach the 500m limit (445m) is worth atking in as part of a longer walk into the Mournes. As there are also three Rocky Mountains, only one over 500m, you could say that the are FIVE mountains in the Mournes with more or less the same name!
