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.

Saturday 6th April Mountainviews Walk
by BleckCra  24 Mar 2019
OI YOU! YEAH YOU!
It's important to support the mountainviews website. Your website. It supports you, with everything you need to know about hills and hill matters throughout the country. The biggest source of mountain info in Ireland.
So you need to support it.
Liz Ashton, committee member of mountainviews, entirely at the cost of her own time and effort has put together a walk for you Saturday 6th April. This entailed her choosing a locus, planning a route and variations, recce-ing the walk, researching and sourcing apres walk facilities, advertising the walk and more.
.... and the hardest thing of all was to get me out of my armchair and go plotting mountains with her.
For you.
So support this walk on Saturday. It's not a big ask and given a fair wind might be one of your best walks ever.
It's a comfortable B grade walk in the beautiful Mourne Mountains based in Newcastle Co Down and plans to take in Slieves Donard and Commedagh.
It will kick off from around 9.30am
