Mourne Wall Towers

The three distinctive stone towers are on or near the summits of Slieve Donard, Slieve Commedagh and Slieve Meelmore.  These structures are listed buildings and scheduled monuments.

They are roughly dressed granite, square on plan, the main shaft tapering in from approximately 3.0m to 2.5m and around 3m in height, capped by a projecting stone block cornice, above which is a square plinth block approx 2.5m square on plan and a stepped pyramidal roof around 2m in height.

The three towers required refurbishment work due to deterioriation of the stone work, concrete and joints and require stoneworks repairs and repointing.
