What is meant by 'old mountain'?, one may ask. Names of this type usually refer to the fact that a place was cleared for agricultural exploitation at an early date and acquired their name when activity shifted to a new area.   Shanlieve is the 247th highest place in Ireland.

Approached from Eagle Mountain, this is approx. 500 metres to the south west and involves very little climbing. Good views open up to the south and the Cooleys. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/236/comment/1977/
