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 311th highest in Ireland. Slieve Anierin is the most southerly summit and also the most westerly in the Breifne area. Slieve Anierin is the second highest point in county Leitrim.

The Quest for the top via the Holy G Trail
by Gerryor  26 Jul 2011
I climbed The Mountain of Iron on Tuesday 19th July 2011. Mixed weather with sunny spells and a few light showers. Good visibility from the top. I basically followed the 'G' waymarked trail (as described here) from Point A (famine memorial seat) to the mass rock and then up to the summit plateau and a trudge to the top. I found the remains of an old bridge near the top suggesting an ancient route. Summit marker relatively easy to find - in the middle of a 'lake' of peat (again as shown here) which is a bit claggy but you can walk on it. I descended straight down to fence next to mine track and returned to start. I called in to Aghacashel PO and spoke to Jackie Lee who is the local co-ordinator. He told me that they are hoping to acquire funding for more leaflets and upgraded display boards. In the meantime the display boards outside the PO describe further walks in the area which I hope to do on a future visit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/305/comment/6434/
