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.

Sunday - Jan 31st 2010. Weather : Cold/ frosty, recent hail shower, bright skies with some low cloud over summit. Started @ 11 am from Aghacashel PO. Very nice man - Jackie Lee in the Shop/PO will tell you all you need to know before you start. Very easy route to follow from PO. 2km rising walk along small country road, over a gate and onwards follow signs to summit. Some tricky spots along side of rock face but otherwise straight forward. Summit is hard to find but turns out be a mound. Good potential for longer climb but kept it short. Descended to old miners road and back the same way - 3 hours in total. Will do Knockacullion and Belcroy in the Summer. Too much snow and ice still. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/305/comment/4381/
