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 926th highest place in Ireland.

Ballincarra
Short Summary created by simon3, aidand  15 Oct 2012
The locals tell me this is really known as Ballincarra, rather than Ballincurra. Jackills description below provides all you need to know about this relatively easy climb. There is plenty of parking at the forest entrance at R924 692 A - this is on the Templederry to Dolla Road. The area here is known as Ormond Stile. Daniel O'Connell is said to have held one of his 'Monster Meetings' here in the 19th Century. Follow the forest road for about 20 minutes and then turn right at R 916 705 B. Follow this track to the end and then head up the hill in front of you. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/814/comment/5573/
