The Slieve Croob mountain range, sometimes called the Dromara Hills
, or "The Twelve Cairns
", is situated in the townland
, in the Barony
, in the eastern part of the Banbridge
region, in the centre of County Down
, Northern Ireland
, and is the source for the River Lagan
. In the original Irish
, Sliabh Crúibe
, it means "Claw Mountain".
Its 523m summit is between the villages of Dromara, Ballynahinch, Dundrum, Castlewellan, and Katesbridge. From this vantage, on a clear day, you can see each of the six counties of Northern Ireland. One finds the Legananny Dolmen on the southern fringe of the mountain range. The dolmen is made up of two portal stones, with a support and a long capstone, making for a tripod appearance.
