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.

Returned for my regular walk around Slievenamon yesterday 16th February 2003. It was a lovely dry, cold and windy day and it was a most enjoyable walk. Unfortunately, because of the misty haze, visibility wasn't everything it could have been. Highly recommend this walk to everyone. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/95/comment/329/
