Known as Torr by the people who live on the N side of Lough Macnean (Kay Muhr). The name Thorne Mountains, which appears on several 16th and 17th century maps of Ireland, Connacht and Ulster, would seem to have some connection with Thur Mountain.   Thur Mountain is the 760th highest place in Ireland. Thur Mountain is the second most easterly summit in the Dartry Mountains area.

Approach from the north east

An alternative (and possibly quicker) route to Mad Frankies is to take the side road signposted to Sean MacDiarmadas home on the road between Glenfarne and Kilty. On this side road take the first turn left, up a bog road (also of surprisingly good surface) and park at a turf bank at G98556 40738 starD directly opposite the small cliffs that mark the peak. It's about a twenty minute walk to the summit from here - Aim for the cliffs. No access issues and surprisingly good views from the summit in all directions. What more could you want!
