Croslieve and Tievecrom, the two hills between which the village of Forkill nestles, are like chalk and cheese. They are mentioned as Creshla Mountain and Tiffcrum in Michael J. Murphy's 'Mountain Year' (1964), spellings which probably reflect the authentic local pronunciation of his day. We tackled Croslieve by cycling up the steep road which approaches from the SE. Up and down takes no more than an hour. There is a double gate at approximately J000153 A (right on the edge of map sheet 29) where we took the track which climbs towards the summit. We passed in full view of a new house with couple of barking dogs, but we met nobody and had no access problems. After climbing a couple of hundred yards, we reached an open field, where we aimed a bit to our right (E) towards an obvious groove which we had spotted earlier from Tievecrom. When we reached it, we found a good farm track which climbed this groove towards the summit. There were some bullocks in this field, but they were more afraid of us than we were of them, and they scarpered as we approached. We crossed a stile to leave this field, still climbing NNE in a straight line towards the summit. Shortly afterwards, the track makes a right angle to the right and climbs steeply (don't take the fainter track which carries straight on along the edge of the forestry). The track passes through a narrow gap and emerges near a mast, which is on a false summit. Pass to the right of the mast compound and head for the summit which is now obvious and not too difficult to reach, though there is no path through the high heather and bilberry. Croslieve is a magnificent viewpoint, once again offering superb views of Slieve Gullion, the other hills in the Gullion ring-dyke and the Cooley Mountains. We shared the summit with a herd of some 20 goats. From here Tievecrom looks a cinch. Don't be fooled! Trackback:
