The OS 6 map shows the name Knocknasilloge. This is confirmed by the draft place-names order for Gaeltacht areas. Shannawona is a townland name, but one clearly derived from a hill name (Ir. Seanadh means 'slope', and it is also widely used as the name of this area of hilly moorland. Leaca Donna / Lackadunna is the name of a lower peak about 1km SW of the summit.   Cnoc na Saileog is the third highest hill in the South Connemara area and the 1056th highest in Ireland.

Knocknasilloge
by Jamessheerin  18 Jan 2011
Well worth the effort; this hill is off the beaten track but has great views of the usual suspects in Connemara- the Bens & Turks, from an unusual angle. Going offroad at L992 401 A, heading SE to the summit of Lackadunna (317m). Several false tops over good ground on the way. The trig point (in great condition) at Knocknasilloge (346m) is a further 850m to the NE over boggy ground. Rounded off the morning by doing several more tops to the NW, coming back to the road at L998 403 B. Something to watch out for on top- an immense standing stone (glacial erratic). An honour to be the first to log this one for Mountain Views! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/903/comment/6203/

Where there is a trig .
by sandman  23 May 2016
Trig points were in operation for a period of circa 20 years and depended on line of sight so that is why at their locations the view is quite good, except in circumstances where after their construction forestry was planted or man made objects appeared. The trig adjacent to this summit is no exception and has fine views. Parking at L9967240301 C ;follow the track uphill through an old farm yard where access can be gained to the open hillside via a pedestrian gate.
