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 summit in Ireland.

After Eagle Mtn it is a short walk to Shanlieve & an ideal stop for my lunch on my hike to Rostrevor.

Descending S, then SSW towards point 583 before turning west for pt 476 and SW again to pt 432,
with a fence to negotiate on the way to Slievemeel. The best thing is to leave this slopes well alone,
particularly after rain. Perhaps better tackled after about 4 foot of snowfall in snowshoes or skis. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/236/comment/3238/
