Hills on Speed's maps
Can anybody offer an identification for the following hills or any relevant
information on them? They are all names taken from John Speed's maps of the
provinces of Ireland, drawn up in 1610. Unfortunately I don't know of any
site where Speed's Irish maps can be viewed online, but they are published
in 'The Counties of Britain - A Tudor Atlas by John Speed' and parts of
them are reproduced in 'Historical Maps of Ireland' by Michael Swift.

1) Haukes rocke (map of Ulster, located in NW Donegal - may just be a locally significant rock. Anyone know of a Carraig an tSeabhaic or the like?)

2) Anna Hill (Leinster, seemingly in the Dublin Mountains)

3) Slepehill (Leinster, NE part of Queen's County (Laois), nr Kildare border)

4) Slew Malora (Munster, N Cork, maybe the former name for Nagle's Mountains
or a specific peak in this range, but I've no idea what the 2nd element is,
suggestions welcome)

5) Slew Welnan (Connaught, N Mayo, nr "Rafraine" (poss. Rathfran townland),
but the 40 miles or so of coast between Erris and Killala Bay is made to
look like about 5 miles, so could be anywhere along N Mayo coast).

Many Thanks,

Paul

Topped Mountain: Short & simple

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy a week ago.
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top.
