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.

An unspectacular summit in the nw mournes. Has good views from the top. Our approach was Crotlieve, the Ulster Way and Castle Bog (be prepared for wet feet). Time taken about 7.5 hours including stops. Photo of NW Mournes, Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/236/comment/735/
