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.

A hard tough walk through the wilderness
by paul condon  6 Sep 2014
September 2014 Slieve Carr is not for the faint hearted. We started from the footbridge "San Francisco" over the Tarsaghaunmore River off the N59 and headed East to join the Bangor Trail. After approx 2kms headed for the slopes of Tawnyanruddia on to Cor Slieve and finally to Slieve Carr 721mtrs. To complete the circuit we headed North towards Maumykelly and cut West in the col and headed West to pick up Bangor Trail and back to cars. This circuit is 20.3kms and the ground for the most part is bog and wilderness. It took close to 7 hrs to complete given the underfoot conditions. Weather was poor low cloud so no views to redeem this walk. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/94/comment/17666/
