Slieve Felim / Sliabh Eibhlinne is the name of a range. Nowadays the name it is often used to refer just to those hills south of the Newport-Rear Cross road, but it once denoted a much larger area. John O'Donovan described as stretching north to Silvermines and east to Dundrum. This means that it included Keeper Hill, Mauherslieve and the Silver Mine Mountains. The earliest reference to this name is in the Annals of Inisfallen, 531 A.D., 'Bellum Eblinne'. The female name Eibhlinn (the name of a goddess) seems to have been confused with the male name Feidhlim, perhaps because Eibhlinn is not used as a name in modern Irish, and Feidhlim was more familiar. Feidhlim was the name of three early kings of Munster. Previously Sliabh Eibhlinne as principal name in MV.   Slieve Felim is the 812th highest summit in Ireland.

Slieve Felim walk

An excellent hike in the hills of north Tipperary. I turned left in Rear Cross, coming from Thurles, and travelled 2.5 KM to a four pier gateway of old stone blocks on my right. I turned to my right into this gateway and drove for about one mile up along the road. It is not the best road but it is ok. I parked my car in a field entrance, parking for about three cars, at R83200 57100 G. I followed this road as far as R71125 57620 H where I turned right into the forest. I turned right at the next track junction and continued to the next T junction. The map is wholly inadequate here so I put it away and followed my instinct. At this T junction I went right again and down to the exit of the wood where I met another track at a T junction. I turned right again and followed this track until I saw a little yellow man on a pole, the Slievefelim way I suppose. I followed this sign to a point where I could see a distinct track leading to the summit of S Felim. Many tracks crossed me but I kept straight on. When I got to the summit I had a clear view of Cullaun and S Felim west 407. I followed a deer track to the bottom of Cullaun and followed the forest service road until it brought me to R82455 56722 I, from here it was a left turn and 10 minutes back to the car. All in all a very pleasant hike about 3 hours. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/705/comment/4287/
