The anglicised form Slievanea would appear to derive from Ir. Sliabh an Fhia, 'mountain of the deer'. The deer is also an important symbol in Celtic mythology. In many tales they lure people into the realm of the gods. Remains of several fulachta fia (venison-cooking pits) can be found around Lough Adoon.   Slievanea is the 241st highest summit in Ireland. Slievanea is the second most westerly summit in the Central Dingle area.

I had a few hours to spare while in Tralee last Friday so I headed for the Connor Pass with the intention of climbing Slievanea. The cloud was at about the 500 mtr mark and there was a strong wind blowing which kept the temperature at about 2 deg C, about 6 deg lower than in Tralee. There is a track leading up the mountain from the Connor pass but it seems to run around the side so I followed my GPS along the cliff edge. There is an indistinct track which you nearly have to follow by the soft feel of the ground compared to that on either side of it- someone has helpfully laid white stones at random intervals also but they are very far apart. About halfway up a sheep wire fence appeared at the edge of the cliff to my left. The top of Maughanablagher is marked by a semi circle of stones and the start of a stonewall which you can walk along some of the way towards Slievanea – 400 mtrs distant across flat ground. Slievaneas summit is a green, mossy area jutting out from the rough, brown grass that grows all along these cliffs. The cloud cover made it impossible to see anything so I beat a hasty retreat for the car. The picture is taken from the side of Maughanablagher at approx 500 mtrs, just below the cloud, looking across over the Pilgrims Route towards Gearhane and the Brandon mountains. Clogharee Lough is nearest, then Lough Atlea and in the distance the corner of Loch Cruite, the largest of Brandons Paternoster lakes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/242/comment/1453/
