Slemish is remarkable for its pudding-like shape, which makes it unmistakable from any angle. It is particulary prominent seen from the west near Ballymena. This shape is due to its origin as a volcanic plug. According to tradition, it was on Slemish that St. Patrick spent six bleak years as a slave herding sheep and swine. Patrick was captured in Britain at the age of 16 and sold as a slave to an Irish chief named Milchú.   Slemish is the 775th highest summit in Ireland.

Well worth a visit
Short Summary created by wicklore,  14 May 2011
Slemish is a striking hill, appearing as a sudden lump sticking out of the surrounding land. It is very popular with Pilgrims on St Patrick’s Day, and can also be busy on most weekends. Starting at 217057 A there is a track to the summit that will take about 20 – 25 minutes. The track is steep and muddy in places and would require care on icy days. Because of land ownership, this is the only approved route to the summit. There is some very steep ground to the north of the summit that would pose danger to the unsuspecting rambler. However stick to the track and there won’t be an issue. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/667/comment/5426/
