Marked as Carn Hill on the OSNI Discoverer map, but better known as Slievetrue. Locally this is pronounced Slieveytrue with 3 syllables. The mountain derives its Irish name from 3 standing stones known as The Three Brothers, located about half a mile SW of the summit. These are now somewhat disguised as they have been integrated into a field wall.
Slievetrue is the third highest hill in the Belfast Hills area and the 1124th highest in Ireland. Slievetrue is the second most northerly summit in the Belfast Hills area. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/945/?PHPSESSID=go4psklkvtjcvvugv2d3dmmrg0
