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.

The most remote cottage in Ireland?
by Colin Murphy  20 Oct 2014
On our approach to Slieve Carr we came across the ruins of the cottage in the picture at point 895 100 I, which appears to be of pre-Famine vintage. There is no visible track approaching it and the nearest track of any description is at least 3km away. The nearest road is 7 km away, and back in the 19th century that was probably only a dirt road. One can only marvel at the ability of those people to eke out a living so far from any form of civilisation and on land that is pretty much worthless. The lower slopes of Slieve Carr did have plenty of evidence of 'lazy beds' - the method required to grow potatoes on poor soil, which involved laying the seed potato on the surface and folding a sod of turf over it. One can only assume this was the household's principal source of food, which of course vanished when the blight struck. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/94/comment/17731/
