Slieve Croob is the tallest of a group of peaks in the middle of County Down, Northern Ireland. These peaks lie north of the Mourne Mountains, between the village of Dromara and the town of Castlewellan. Slieve Croob has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is the source of the River Lagan, which starts as a spring and runs from here, through Dromara, Dromore, County Down, Lisburn and Belfast, where it enters Belfast Lough.
Folklore tells that 12 kings are buried at the hilltop and each year it is traditional to climb Slieve Croob on the first Sunday in August and carry with you a stone to help bury the kings. In recent times there is traditional Irish music played at the top of the Mountain on this date.
