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.

CaptainVertigo on Slieve Commedagh, 2005

With our backs to Commedagh we headed down by the Mourne Wall towards Hare's Gap . To the South lay the stunning Silent Valley. To the West ( out in front ) were Bearnagh and Meelmore ( both climbed at the end of March). The wind dropped. The sun blazed and we had a very special time at the heart of the Mournes. A delightful alteration to our plans saw Ned Hennigan take a hard right (i.e. north) well before Hare's Gap so that instead of descending along the valley floor of the Trassey Track we held the high ground on its eastern slopes. The views were stunning. What a contrast to the five hour soaking in Wicklow the previous Sunday!! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/63/comment/1660/
