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 930th highest place in Ireland.

Shaggy dog story
by Colin Murphy  29 Jun 2022
Other contributors have remarked on the curious porcelain dog marking the summit, speculating that it might be a memorial to a beloved pet. Well, it's not. As my daughter & 1 descended we encountered an elderly local gentleman walking a dog and I asked him about the porcelain canine. He told us that he regularly walks there and one day he discovered that some lout had dumped a load of rubbish on the track, said rubbish including the dog. He removed the rubbish but decided to carry the large ornament to the summit and leave it there as a curiosity. So ends one minor mountain mystery!
