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.

I climbed Slievnamon on the route suggested by Simon, which is clearly signposted from the Main Clonmel to Kilkenny road.A glorious day with many people striking for the summit .
The picture shows the trig pillar on the summit with a curious " standing stone" (which may be a recent addition?) You can make out the Comeraghs stretching across the horizon from Coumfea on the left to the Knockanaffrin ridge towards the center of the photo. On the extreme right is the start of the Knockmealdown range. 2 hrs and 7 kms. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/95/comment/1694/
