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 107th highest summit in Ireland.

Carrick Little track to ascend Southern shoulder of Cove Mt. above Cove Lough to reach col between Cove and Slieve Lamagan. Tough ascent at first. Met a bog lizard and a Peregrine Falcon! Great views from summit.
