As on Slieve Meelmore, there is a tower near the summit of Slieve Commedagh. On the southern side, at the head of the Annalong Valley, is a spectacular group of granite tors known as 'the Castles'. These can be appreciated from the Brandy Pad, a track once used by smugglers. During the 18th Century the Mourne Mountains were notorious for smuggling commodities such as wine, silk, tobacco, tea and brandy, mainly from Britain. The cargo would be brought ashore under the cover of darkness and taken over the mountains to Hilltown and the surrounding areas.   Slieve Commedagh is the second highest mountain in the Mourne Mountains area and the 64th highest in Ireland. Slieve Commedagh is the second highest point in county Down.

Surprisingly little known
by Aidy  31 May 2014
Easily accessed along the col after first walking up Slieve Donard. It was then possible to take a slightly different route back down to the Glen River by walking along the ridge with the steep sides on the east, offering fresh views of Donard. For such an impressvie lump of a mountain, it was strange to find when talking to locals in Newcastle, that many had never heard of Commedagh. The second highest peak in the Mournes deserves more fame! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/63/comment/16087/
