Bleantasour and Bleantasourmountain are townlands in the parish of Seskinan. Cnoc Bhléantas Odhar is given as the Irish form of the latter at logainm.ie. Most of the townland names containing the word "mountain" in this part of Co. Waterford refer not to summits but to areas of mountain pasture.   Bleantasour Mountain is the 931st highest place in Ireland.

I approached Bleantasour from Milk Hill, which is an easy 20 minute trot. As with Milk Hill, the summit has been burned recently, and (churns aside) is rather unremarkable save the nice views. I also spotted a fox out on a mission at 2.30 pm in the day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/821/comment/4583/
