This peak offers a fine view north to Slieve Gullion and its satellites, and south to County Louth, but access is difficult due to dense undergrowth. A group of stones beside the triangulation pillar on the summit may be the Bohil Breaga of Tiffcrum (i.e. the false lad or shepherd) referred to by Michael J. Murphy in his book 'Mountain Year' (p. 40).   Tievecrom is the 1246th highest place in Ireland.

Coming down off Slieve Gullion (Culann's Mtn) you get this lovely framed view of Forkhill sandwiched between Croslieve and Tievecrom.

It's easy to understand how a village might pop up in such a natural gateway, and the gaelic origin ("foirceall") for which refers to a trough or hollow.

The main ancient north-south routeway was of course slightly further east of Gullion, the Gap of the North near Jonesborough (a route more closely aligned with the train line it would seem than the motorway), but you would imagine that others watched over these passes from these hills in times long since passed, and that's certainly a more romantic notion than modern history might conjure up.
