So named, according to Harris (author of The Antient and Present State of the County of Down), because it has to be climbed in a crawling position. The southern slopes are, indeed, relentlessly steep. An alternative name, Sliabh Snámháin, has the same meaning. Below Lamagan Slabs is a spot called Percy Bysshe, which suggests a connection with the poet Shelley.   Slievelamagan is the 109th highest place in Ireland.

Slow Recovery
by susanc  2 Jul 2016
Starting at Rourkes Park went up past the weir, cut across to the track by Lower Cove and then up to the summit of Lamagan. Descended the steeper side down to the track from Carrick Little. Found this side of the mountain is still suffering from the severe fire a few years ago with a lot of exposed peat and rocks with only a few inches of regrowth. Many people climb Lamagan after Binnian but I think there's a case for restricting walkers, if it was possible, to allow the mountain time to recover.
