An Isol-Prom High Point is any of the twenty summits in Ireland which are higher than all their respective surrounding ground for at least 20km in all directions and have a topographical prominence of at least 500m. This original list compiled by Kieron Gribbon was first published on 12th September 2017 and is the first Irish summit list ever to be based purely on topographical isolation and prominence. It is a secondary sub-list of the Gribbon list of Ireland's major geographical High Points, a sub-set of the 20km Isolation High Points, and a sub-set of the 500m Prominence High Points. It is also an original standalone list in its own right. In the High Point Ireland leagues, awards, and challenge initiatives, this entire sub-list is worth a total of 249 points and 15,496 metres.
