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.

C'est une montagne que j'ai grimpée en 2004, avec mon conjoint. Nous avons adoré la vue qui s'est offerte à nous rendus au sommet. Le parcours était bien, pas trop dur. Une bonne partie du parcours se fait sur un trottoir de bois. C'était une très belle ballade ! La photo nous montre une belle perspective...et une vue spectaculaire et une évasion parfaite !
