Slieve Commedagh (from Irish: Sliabh Coimhéideach, meaning "mountain of guarding/watching") 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, 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.
The Slieve Commedagh massif also includes the peaks of Slievecorragh (to the east), Shan Slieve, Slievenamaddy and Slievenabrock (to the north).
