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 749th highest place in Ireland.

Climbed from Silent Valley as part of a walk along the Mourne Wall. The wall initially runs to the left of the mountain to avoid the worst of the heavy ground and I recommend you do the same. The wall then makes straight for the top and as the ground gets drier, the incline gets steeper. The wall can then be followed down another very steep incline to cross Bann's Road and on up Slieve Muck. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/635/comment/4056/
