Height: 638m

Terrain: Rocky with well worn grass in places & therefore muddy. On approaching from the Windy Gap the grass/heather is quite wet.


This photo was taken by Michéal Mc Parland from the summit of Tievedockaragh. On a clear day this is a beautiful place to get a view of many of the mourne peaks. Although not a great photo Eagle is to the right of the photo.

In the foreground is Pierces Castle can clearly be seen. Right in the background are the peaks of Meelbeg, Meelmore, Slieve Bearnagh and Commedagh.
