Slieve Commedagh (from Irish: Sliabh Coimhéideach, meaning "mountain of guarding/watching")[3] is a 767 m (2,516 ft) mountain in County Down, Northern Ireland. It is the second-highest of the Mourne Mountains, after Slieve Donard,[1] and the second-highest mountain in Northern Ireland.

Slieve Commedagh lies to the northwest of Slieve Donard, and the two are linked by a col. At the summit of the mountain is a small one-room tower. This stone tower is part of the Mourne Wall, which passes over the mountain.[1]

The Slieve Commedagh massif also includes the peaks of Slievecorragh (to the east), Shan Slieve, Slievenamaddy and Slievenabrock (to the north).
