The hill derives its name from a cairn at the summit. Ériu is a sovereignty goddess embodying Ireland. Éire is the Modern Irish form of this name. See Arderin in Slieve Bloom, which has a similar origin. Unfortunately, the cairn is overgrown and the formerly excellent view of Lough Neagh has been totally blocked by newly planted conifers. Tobernaveen Hill is a slightly lower hill to the west. Carnearny is recorded in the Annals of the Four Masters as the site of a battle in 912 AD where the local chieftain Loingsech Ua Lethlobhair (Lawlor) was defeated by Niall, son of Aedh Finnliath of Tyrone [LNP].   Carnearny is the 1105th highest summit in Ireland. Carnearny is the most southerly summit in the Antrim Hills area.

Short Summary created by simon3, wicklore,  16 Feb 2015
Carnearney is a forest covered hill that only affords views on the approach roads or from one area of cleared forestry on its western slopes. It is popular with mountain bikers and scramblers, so the trails through the trees are churned up and very muddy in places. By parking at the forestry entrance at 176923 A, you can ramble along the forest track to a telecommunications mast, from where the small summit clearing is a short uphill hop. Alternatively from the forest entrance you can head directly to the summit through the trees in about 10 minutes, where you will soon join a churned up trail leading to the summit trig pillar which is obscured amongst vegetation.
