This mountain is steeped in mythology. The name is derived from the following legend: Fionn Mac Cumhaill sat waiting at the top while women raced up it to win his hand. Since Fionn and Gráinne were in love, he had shown her a short-cut and she duly won the race. Yeats preferred the name Knockfefin. The mountain rises from the plain of Femen, which represents ‘woman’ or ‘femininity’. The song Slievenamon is the Tipperary anthem.   Slievenamon is the highest mountain in the South Midlands area and the 98th highest in Ireland.

did this climb today. Steeper than I expected but enjoyable. After the memory seat the track up is badly eroded after the wet summer of 2012 but just as easy to ascend by walking to the left of the path. Unfortunately the mist descended half way up so no views today, but a good workout none the less. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/95/comment/14861/
