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 925th highest place in Ireland.

Having completed the easy trot up and down from Knockadigeen (see my comment there for parking info), I headed SW for Ballincurra. The shortest obvious route appeared to be a direct route up, keeping the Coillte forest to the right and the open fields to the left. I stopped in at the house adjoining my planned route up and asked if it was ok for the dog and me to skirt their fields on the way up: no problem came the answer. After negotiating a fence, the last 400 metres before reaching the summit is across knee-to-waist-high heather. Not too pleasant, and quite tiring. Once on top, Lough Derg is visible to the far north, with the view SW partially obscured by plantation. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/814/comment/4202/
