The gap between Ballincurra Hill and Cooneen Hill is known as Ormond Stile (sometimes Ormond Style). It is mentioned by John O'Donovan as the northern limit of Sliabh Eibhlinne (Slieve Felim), and he calls it Céim Urmhumhain, 'the step of Ormond'. It is on the southern boundary of the barony of Upper Ormond.   Ballincurra Hill is the 922nd highest place in Ireland.

It's quite easy to link this hill and Knockadigeen hill by using the very good forest tracks. Some road walking is necessary at the end (or begining). The descent NE from Ballincurra is through the waist deep heather mentioned above by csd, however, as its downhill. its a little easier and is relatively free of potholes and rocks.
