This is the lower of two peaks in the Mourne Mountains called Slievenaglogh, the other being situated further north near Hare's Gap. This Slievenaglogh overlooks the Silent Valley Reservoir, constructed in the 1920s to supply water for Belfast. Before it was flooded, the Silent Valley was known as the 'Happy Valley'. Labourers from the Happy Valley constructed the Mourne Wall for the Belfast and District Water Commissioners to delimit the catchment area. It is 2-2.5m high and 1m thick, encloses 9,000 acres of land (3,600 hectares) and passes over the summit of many of Mourne's highest peaks.   Slievenaglogh is the 747th highest place in Ireland.

There's a small car park at the bottom of the Banns Road, at J28460 21419 A, where I parked for my walk up to Slievenaglogh. I followed the road (a track, really) north into the hills, before striking out east across open ground to gain the summit of Slievenaglogh. Terrific views from the top of the reservoirs and nearby peaks, which belie Slievenaglogh's modest height. Well worth the effort! Up and down via the Banns Road can be done in two hours, though you'll probably want to make more of a walk of it if you have the time to spare.
