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.

Like Simon3 and other members I took the kilcash route. Amazing views, even from the well named 'memory seat' at the bottom of this fine mountain. The Slieve Bloom can the seen to the north, Knockshegowna peeping too. The Devils Bit, Knockanora down to the Galtees, Comeragh etc, just grand views of the rich countryside and majestic mountains! No wonder its the Tipperary Anthem. I met over a dozen people on the long gradual climb watched by a couple of Hawks hovering about the forestry. The standing stone is made of granite not a stone of the mountain. Thankfully the trig was not in the cairn, which is quite large. A really enjoyable experience. One tip, bring a walking stick for the journey back down. A challenge worth taking. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/95/comment/3942/
