Also known as Slieve Cor or Corslieve. The Discovery map links the name Corslieve with a neighbouring peak (541m) situated about 3 miles to the south, but the Ordnance Survey Name Book and William Bald's map of Mayo (1830) show quite clearly that it is simply an alternative for Slieve Carr, with the same elements inverted. A cairn on the summit is named Laghtdauhybaun on the old ½ inch map, but is unnamed on the Discovery map. This is probably derived from Ir. Leacht Dáithí Bháin, 'burial monument of white Dáithí'. There may be a connection with Dáithí, a king of Connacht and reputed last pagan high-king of Ireland (see Slieve Alp).   Slieve Carr is the second highest mountain in the North Mayo area and the 97th highest in Ireland.

Climbed Slieve Carr in Aug 2003, as part of an attempted two day hike from Bangor to Mullranney. After a tough 6.5 hour hike along the trail from Bangor I camped to the S of Tawnyanruddia near a galvanized 'crinkly tin' bothy erected as a shelter on the Bangor Trail Ref:905113 E (I would have saved the extra weight of a tent had I known). Trail was very wet and difficult under foot after a prolonged wet spell. Site was absolutly magnificant with the vast expanse of the Owenduff valley streching out to the SW; not a person or house in sight. I soon realised that my ambition was slightly beyond my fitness levels at the time, and so an alternative plan was hatched. The following morning I climbed Slieve Carr from the tent. The ground was dry and firm and I was blessed with clear weather on the summit, which possesses a substantial cairn built by some very early members of the Celtic hillwalking fraternity (slightly tougher than the current breed). It also has some unrivalled views of the vast area of forest/bogland to the east; which also contains a large windfarm and turf burning station at Bellacorick. The revised plans did not allow time for a visit to Nephin Beg, which combined with Slieve Carr would make a great day out. The map indicates a track out through the Owenduff valley to Srahduggaun Ref:866072 F, which was to be my new destination. Track of sorts would be a better description as it was only slightly less wet than the adjacent bog, and one which should be avoided only after a prolonged dry spell. It should also be noted that there are two rivers to cross which could prove difficult in certain conditions. Slieve Carr is a remote mountain which is well worth the effort to get to if you enjoy the feeling of space. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/94/comment/1099/
