This name may signify 'cross mountain' in the sense 'transverse', but since this does not seem to suit the topography, it may rather be due to a cross once located on it.   Cross Slieve is the 1377th highest place in Ireland.

Harry Goodman on Cross Slieve, 2010
by Harry Goodman  27 Jan 2010
As Cross Slieve was the only top in the Antrim Hills MV list that I had not climbed I took advantage, when in the area on 26 Jan 2010 to climb Croaghan, to complete my list. Having noted slemish's comments that the summit is on private farmland and is therefore inaccessible, I sought access by walking up a rough farm track from D2383628898 A. This leads to the summit and it was my intention to seek permission at the farm house marked on the map some distance up. Initially I passed through an unlocked steel gate. When I arrived at the farmhouse I found it had long been deserted and in a ruined state. I continued up the track to it's end on the flat top of the hill. The high point (206m) lies some 125m to the left (W) at D237295 B at a fence junction. The land here is so flat that many points within a 100 x 100 metre square could (visually) be the high point! When I was there I crossed over a stile near the end of the track, on the right and made my way across to the lesser highpoint shown on the map as 203m and from there out to tiny Ellens Lough before re-tracing my steps back to track. A brisk walk up and down this little hill would take 20 minutes or so, but once there my wanderings extended my time to about 55 minutes. Back at the car I met a local man who advised me that the owner of the land lived in the house some 150 metres back along the road. I called at the house and advised that I had been up the track to the top and had intened to ask permission at the farm house, only to find it deserted. The lady to whom I spoke had no objections to what I had done. Apart from passing through one gate on the way to the top of Cross Slieve by this route there is no need to cross any barriers. One final point regarding slemish's comment about "private farmland" and "accessability". The vast majority of upland areas are privately owned but access to the hills in most areas is not a problem. If in doubt seek permission. Linkback:
