A Local Council High Point is any of the forty-three locations on the official list of Ireland's major geographical High Points which represents the highest point in at least one of Ireland's forty-two local council areas. These forty-three locations appear on the list as thirty-eight entries (the extra five locations result from Slieve Donard, Moylussa and Barnacranny Hill each having two options, and the summits of Galtymore Mountain and Arderin not being perfectly shared between their respective pairs of local council areas). The sub-list below was first compiled by Kieron Gribbon and was originally published on 5th December 2015. Being the first local council area high points list ever to be published for Ireland, the Local Council High Points sub-list is also an original standalone list in its own right. In the annual All-Ireland Hillwalking Championships, this entire sub-list is worth a total of 347 points.
