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.

Ireland's two most remote peaks in one day
by Colin Murphy  19 Oct 2014
We set ourselves the challenge of bagging Slieve Carr and Nephin Beg in the same day in October, which required a car at either end of the route. Started at 7.45 am, parking at the end of a narrow road/track at 866 073 A. There is a substantial track running for about 7km to the east indicated on the OS map, which seems to cross the Owenduff River soon after the parking spot, but the river was almost in flood the day we did the walk and there was no means of crossing. So we continued over the open ground to the south of the river, the going being reasonably good but with occasional boggy patches and areas of tall grass. Eventually the river narrowed enough to cross at point 895 085 B and we crossed very flat and increasingly squelchy ground to the NE for 3km to point 915 115 C, where we began our ascent directly to the north up very steep but solid ground. At point 913 124 D we turned east for a few hundred metres before turning north up the gently rising slope for 2km to the summit of Slieve Carr, marked by a huge burial mound and a trig pillar. From here we partly re-traced our steps to point 921 121 E and descended a very steep grassy slope to the col. We skirted around the east of the two loughs and began our ascent of Nephin Beg at 935 115 F. A steep but quite manageable climb over grass and rocks. The summit is marked by a small cairn. It had been dry up to this point but the rest of the walk was completed in heavy rain and high winds. From there we proceeded directly south, bagged the Carn, Nephin Beg South Top, then descended to the Bangor Trail at 933 077 G. Followed the trail for 5km back to car park at 973 054 H. The last 30 minutes of the walk was in darkness and required the use of head lamps. The entire walk took 11.5 hours. Extremely challenging day!
