Longitude: -5.966147, Latitude: 54.166118 , Easting: 332887, Northing: 326033 Prominence: 197.18m,   Isolation: 1.3km
ITM: 732807 826038,   GPS IDs, 6 char: Slvlmg, 10 char: Slvlmgn
Bedrock type: Granite granophyre, (Mourne Mountains granite)

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 summit in Ireland.

hi fingal, i am originally from the mournes and my father once told me that the yanks used lamagan for target practise during ww2. the guns were set up in a field behind his house (longstone). all around lamagan we used to find shrapnel and i have personally seen (my brother should still have it) a shell casing with the compression ring still on it. as for recent blasting i don't think it is going on, lamagan is prone to rock slides due to old injuries.
