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 246th highest summit in Ireland.

Two for the price of one!

From Eagle, it's just a short stroll along Batts Wall across to the summit cairn on Shanlieve - a case of two 600 metre summits for the price of one!. The cairn stands just a short distance from the wall and on our visit, was surrounded by a white covering of Bog Cotton. Pigeon Rock, Slievemoughanmore, Eagle and Shanlieve make up a nice walk from Deers Meadow, the only drawback being that you have to retrace your steps back to the starting point although the more adventurous can plot a return route off the beaten track.
