Notes on name: Broemountain is a townland split between the parishes of Lickoran and Seskinan. Ir. breo means ‘fire’, ‘flame’, ‘torch’, etc., but there is no evidence to suggest that it can denote a beacon, nor that a beacon existed on Broemountain. One possibility is that the name refers to the declivity between the summit and the peak just 1m lower located 1km to the SW. In Welsh briw means ‘cut’ or ‘wound’. This seems apt given that the two peaks are bisected by a path passing from NW to SE. The valley on the SE side is Glen Trusnaun, also seems to allude to this crossing (Ir. trasnán, ‘transverse piece’). See also Knocknabro and Inishnabro in Co. Kerry, and Brow Head in Co. Cork.

Good viewing potential and easily reached.

Broemountain is well positioned to give interesting views due to its location and because is has recently been clear-felled. You can reach it from the forest entrance at Knocksculloge (S13175 06653) where there is a place to park a few cars.
I wasn't there on a day that showed off the view however here is a picture of the fine sandstone cairn on the top - you can see the clear felling behind it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/696/comment/4659/

Good views from so-so top

Followed jackal's directions and accessed the hill at A (S1396 0621) , following a muddy trail up the gently rising slope. This appears to be heading to the summit, but is actually taking you to a less prominent area, visible in picture on the right. The trail appears to end around B (S142 064) , but in fact branches off to the NE in a much narrower version, which leads across a grassy field to a rough, heathery area surrounded by a wall/fence. The high point is marked by a decent cairn. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/696/comment/23282/
