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.

I started at Yellow River picnic area (grid 209223 I) and followed path upstream crossing 2 bridges onto a forest road. Follow this uphill and along valley side through Rostrevor Forest until reach Batts Wall (grid 218237 J). Cross wall and take rough track to a religious monument celebrating Pope John Pauls visit to Ireland - complete with large cross and alter table! Continue uphill along Batts Wall which goes direct to the summit - gaiters are a necessity. From the summit there are good views to Binnian and into the Silent Valley to Ben Crom, continued over 2km south staying above 550m to reach Finlieve for views over Carlinford Lough. Had cloud cover and heavy mist most of day but sun came out as i was returning so got some nice pics - Shanlieve reflected in Shanlough included here.
