The name of Torc Mountain, like Mount Eagle and the Wolf's Step on the Dingle Peninsula, reminds us of a wild animal once common in the forests of Ireland. Wild boar is significant in Celtic mythology, being depicted on Celtic artefacts found in continental Europe, Ireland and Britain. It represents physical strength and heroic fighting skills.   Torc Mountain is the 456th highest place in Ireland. Torc Mountain is the most northerly summit in the Mangerton area.

Fine day for a school outing
by three5four0  6 Oct 2011
Climbed Torc Mountain from the top Car Park. It was another wind swept and sodden day with quite impressive heavy down powers thrown in for good measure. As Mrs three5four0 and I looked on, from under our winter waterproofs (it was our summer hols after all!) We watched as a large group of school children walked up the hill in the rain, character building stuff indeed ! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/383/comment/6574/
