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.

deswalk on Slievenamon, 2007

I climbed Slievenamon on 5 April 2007 Easter Week. The weather was extraordinary with high pressure and clear blue sky. I took the popular route signposted as 'Slievenamon Summit' from point 317288 B just up from Kilcash.I first climbed this in 1980 and the last time before Thursday was about twenty years ago. The track has grown in width over the years and is now almost a road to the summit. However the view is still as magnificent. I was up at the top at 7pm and it was deserted. Superb.
