Summit situated in the townland of Cross. Had an army base on the summit, dismantled around 2001. The second element of Slieve Girkin is suggestive of cuircín, 'crest' or 'comb', which would fit well with the crinkly appearance of the summit when seen from Camlough, but no Irish forms have been found to confirm this.   Camlough Mountain is the 834th highest place in Ireland. Camlough Mountain is the second highest point in county Armagh.

Great views of Newry and Carlingford Lough

Parked at J05415 23936 A, and walked up the road through the forest till we met the masks, This is a lovely walk in the evening but a big mistake is to continue walking along the road after the mask till the 90Deg corner then start the climb to the summit. It’s just difficult on foot with marsh and long grass, A better route as we found coming back is to follow the track around the back of the masks which leads up to the top of the hill. Recent gorse fires have made walking on this easy but the black charcoal dust gets into your eyes and cloths. Up and down, you'll complete this in 1.5 hours Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/724/comment/6399/
