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.

Slievenamon is a much under-rated climb/walk. It's generally viewed as a typical tourist up-the-track and down-the-track linear walk. In fact, a lovely and enjoyable circular route over all the sub-peaks surrounding the main one, circling back via a visit to the Killusty cross is about 10 miles and addords great views of the Suir valley. The route back passes beside one of the last remaining sections of Oak forrest in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/95/comment/176/
