Cullenagh Mountain is the highest of a group known as the Slieve Lough Hills or Dysart Hills. On the northern edge of this range is the Pass of the Plumes (Ir. Bearna na gCleití), site of a famous battle in 1599, in which the O'Moores of Leix routed the forces of the Earl of Essex.   Cullenagh Mountain is the 1108th highest place in Ireland.

Cullenagh - now Briar Free
by pompeii  31 Mar 2013
Today, Easter Sunday, we climbed Cullenagh following the routes described by MV contributors. We were prepared for the worst when we arrived at the clearing before the final 15 - 20m ascent. To our pleasant surprise some kind soul(s) had cleared a grassy briar-free 1.5m wide path right up to the trig point! We did not need our machetes! Sadly, the view from the top is very restricted now due to the growing Coillte larch and Sikta spice plantings. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/936/comment/14958/
