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.

We climbed Slieve Carr last Sunday (Easter 2009), via Nephin Beg S Top, Nephin Beg & Corslieve and back via The Bangor Trail to the carpark before Srahmore Lodge. What a day!, sunny & clear, a bit breeze on the tops perhaps, but the views towards Achill were fantastic.

Is this the most remote hill on the Mountain Views website?, or are there other candidates lurking elsewhere ?, I made it 14 km back from the summit to our car along the Bangor Trail. Which, lets face it, is only marginally less soft than the surrounding bog, so its not exactly a quicker way back. So, is Slieve Carr Irelands' Carn an Fhidhleir or even it's Seana Bhraigh, discuss !
