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 928th highest place in Ireland.

New Comment: A forest ramble
by High-King  5 Sep 2021
I started in Templederry and took the road marked Dolla, I drove to the forestry entrance about 2km on my right hand side, Parking for 3 to 4 cars. Step over the forestry barrier and follow the good track uphill. After 20 minutes there is a sign on your right "burial ground". This is not the turn to take. Go another five minutes and the road splits. Take the road to the right and uphill. After a bit the track tops out and starts to become narrow. When the track ends the mountain isc250m on the left. For some reason the summit is marked by a Delph white dog. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/814/comment/23265/
