Lobawn's boggy summit plateau and "War Department No. 13" summit marker

Lobawn (Irish: Lúbán, meaning "little bend")[2] at 636 metres (2,087 ft), is the 182nd–highest peak in Ireland on the Arderin scale,[3] and the 219th–highest peak on the Vandeleur-Lynam scale.[4][5] Lobawn has a flat boggy summit plateau with a "war department" concrete post to mark the top. Lobawn lies in the west section of the Wicklow Mountains, in Wicklow, Ireland, and has a subsidiary summit called Sugarloaf (West Wicklow) 552 metres (1,811 ft).[6][7] Both Lobawn and the Sugarloaf border the Glen of Imaal, and their summits lie close to the actual boundaries of the Glen of Imaal Military Artillery Firing Range.[8]
