On Tim Robinson's map of Connemara, Seanadh Bhéara (Shannavara) only appears as a townland name. This hill is named Cnoc Úraid. A legend predicts that Cnoc Úraid / Oorid Hill will be the site of the last battle for Christianity. [TR]   Seanadh Bhéara is the highest hill in the South Connemara area and the 1033th highest in Ireland.

This is the first comment on Seanadh Bheara, but somebody obviously beat me to the summit as there are tiny cairns (sitting on rocks) to mark two points competing for the highest!! (they are about 100m apart). Although small in height at 358m, it is an isolated summit and has fabulous panoramic views. The first section of the Maamturks (Corcog to Binn Mhor) looms to the north. The Twelve Bens are also visible, with Ben Lettery and Bengower most prominent on the skyline(west north west). However the views west and south are the most spectacular; Seanadh Bheara is the perfect vantage point for those million or so lakes in South Connemara, as it is much closer than the Maamturks or Bens. I lost count at about ten thousand. The Aran Islands were clearly visible, and the shower that was west of Inis Mor when I was at the summit caught me within 20 mins and before I had reached the car! My point of access was the end of the cul de sac road that leads south east (on average) from the N59 past Oorid Lough (931 450 A). I asked for permission to access the hill at the second last house as the start of the walk goes through a farmyard area and there are several gates and fenced enclosures on the first few minutes of the walk. An absolute gem to compete with any in Connemara. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/888/comment/4541/
