Also known as Corrie/Corry Mountain. A point SE slopes of this summit is the highest point in Co. Roscommon (422m). Note, however, that the summit is in Co. Leitrim. Seltannasaggart or Corry Mountain is also the name of a townland in the parish of Inishmagrath. Corry appears to be from Ir. corrach, 'marsh or moor'.   Seltannasaggart is the second highest hill in the Arigna Mountains area and the 813th highest in Ireland.

Tilting at windmills...and open cast mines

Considering the summit area of Seltannasaggart seems to have all the geographical consistency of 'Brigadoon' I thought that some instructions for gaining this week's highest point might be in order. I deployed the previously mentioned start at (920191 F), and having used Mr Gribbon's book to locate the Roscommon high point I turned my attentions to the main summit. From the junction at (902197 G) follow the sign pointing to 'Moneenatieve Wind Farm: M20 - 25 1.5km ahead'. The gate mentioned by Gribbon seems to have gone but two metal posts either side of the track probably denote its former location. No matter: at the first junction encountered follow the sign for 'T6 - T8', and finally follow 'T6' at the next one: this can be translated as 'keep right at both of them'. From here a small cairn can be seen on the skyline on the right of the track (pimple just right of centre in the photo): keep going for a 100m or so and it's then very easy to walk up to it. This (for now) seems higher than all other surfaces nearby, although it's obviously an eminence of extracted earth rather than a natural part of the hill.

A hilltop that is simultaneously appallingly mutilated and horribly fascinating. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/698/comment/14903/
