The name Sliabh Níadh is mentioned in Buile Shuibhne, the 12th century narrative known in English as The Frenzy of Suibne or The Madness of Sweeeny. Another line in Buile Shuibhne refers to Sliabh na nEach, 'mountain of the steeds', which may be a variant name for the same mountain, although this is further away from the modern anglicised form.   Slievenanee is the second highest mountain in the Antrim Hills area and the 436th highest in Ireland. Slievenanee is the second highest point in county Antrim.

Summit?
by Welder  28 Jul 2013
Climbed up by the fence from the Old Cushendun Rd to a small cairn - but not the top. Drifted off NE to look for the top & eventually spied another, but not completely convinced it occupies the highest point. Mindful of the comments of others I chose a summer day after a dry spell and it was well worth it, I could just walk over the usually boggy summit.
