This area is area is known for its mineral resources, particularly the coal which was mined in the vicinity of Arigna. There were also iron workings beside Lough Allen at the base of this mountain, still operating in the late 19th century. A local legend holds that they were worked by Goibnenn, the smith-god of the Tuatha Dé Danann.   Slieve Anierin is the second highest mountain in the Breifne area and the 327th highest in Ireland. Slieve Anierin is the most southerly summit and also the most westerly in the Breifne area. Slieve Anierin is the third highest point in county Leitrim.

A good start for Sliabh an Iarainn is from the end of the old miners' track in the townland of Mullaghgarve,H023156 H. Ascend steeply to the plateau avoiding the cliffs; then trudge across boggy ground to the highest point. The walk becomes more interesting if one continues on to Knockabell and Bencroy with more extensive views and more easy terrain. A return to base may be made by taking the rough sheep track which runs along the eastern cliffs,passing the pleasant Loch nabellbeg on one's left. A 5 hour walk and a fair amount of energy is expended. One wonders sometimes was the journey really necessary. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/305/comment/1173/
