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.

Sorry but Commedagh can't come out to play..
by paulocon  14 May 2010
Having viewed some of the photos on here, Commedagh was one mountain that I was really looking forward to and would represent the 2nd last major climb as I made my way around the Mourne Wall. Typical then that after a relatively clear day, a massive thick cloud should move in across the summit just as I approached.
Because of this, my experience of Commedagh was limited to a quick stop at the hefty watchtower and a brief but heavy shower of hailstones. I briefly contemplated walking over to the summit proper but that would have involved literally walking into the storm-cloud and with both my mind and body in a poor condition after a days walking, I decided that probably wasn't the best idea and quickly moved off to Donard.
It is a pretty handy walk from Slievenglogh with one section that represents probably the narrowest 'ridge' along the wall although this fact is pretty much concealed by the presence of the wall. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/63/comment/4730/
