Carrigatuke has a nice, unobstructed view all around, from the Mournes to the Sperrins, but it's not really a mountain for climbing. There is a tiny road (Viewpoint Rd, H90335 30348 E ) off the main road (Keady Rd, starts at H89347 30186 F ) between Keady and Newtownhamilton that leads over to it. The summit is a peaceful area aside from the occasional joyriding competition that seem to be held (I've never encountered one myself but there are tire marks that tell).
I went to Carrigtuke on the way home from Slieve Gullion one day, and it is a worthwhile sidetrack. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/881/comment/18422/
