The mineral works of earliest celebrity are the copper and lead mines of the Silvermines. They were first worked by an English company in the seventeenth century, who extracted a considerable quantity of silver from the ore [Gleeson - History of Ely O'Carroll Territory].   Silvermine Mountains East Top is the 633rd highest place in Ireland.

Simple and straightforward

A really simple bag this. All of 20 minutes to reach top. Misty most of the way, so limited views. I did pass a section of forest that appears to have fallen victim to a fire. I was a bit creepy in the mist and reminded me of images I'd seen of WW1's Somme battlefield. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/519/comment/23704/
