The River Lagan rises on the northern slopes of Slieve Croob. The three parishes of Magherahamlet, Kilmegan and Drumgooland converge on the summit, which has excellent panoramic views, including a particularly fine view of the northern peaks in the Mourne Mountains. Until the mid-20th century, there was a tradition of climbing the mountain on Blaeberry Sunday at the end of July or beginning of August. This is clearly a survival of a Lughnasa tradition [see MacNeill, 155-56]. The summit cairn is locally known as the Twelve Cairns, but this seems to be a relatively modern name arising from damage causing the break-up of a single cairn into several smaller heaps.   Slieve Croob is the 460th highest place in Ireland. Slieve Croob is the most northerly summit in the Mourne Mountains area.

I agree with many of the comments about the masts and antennae on the top of Slieve Croob. But mid morning when I was there with the sun over the Irish Sea and rain heading in quickly from the north it was a place of weather contrasts which I think this photo captures.
