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 1381th highest place in Ireland.

I read Harry Goodman's comments on Cross Slieve, whilst the wind battered the outside of the Hostel we were staying in. In one memorable incident, it lifted an old brandy barrel - which had been weighed down with blocks - right up into the air and towards a parked van, causing much panic in the immediate vicinity. But then Patagonia summers are like that.

With Cross Slieve being the last MV summit in the Antrim Hills section and my last local 100 hill that i had to complete, i was naturally keen to get going, once I returned from the southern hemisphere that is. Spoke to the Lady at the farm house and all was well for an ascent. I followed Harry Goodman's route, up the track to the summit area. I agree with his comments regarding the highest point, perhaps erring towards the slight rise to the left of the spot height and the fence junction. Where a fence runs SSE with an open gate in it, this would of course be entirely within the margin for error in a 1:25000 map.

Walked out to the other 200 metre top , past some dead sheep, and over a small foot stile and another fence. The altimeter confirmed this area as 200 metre and I returned by the way of ascent for some celebratory pints of Guinness in McBrides in Cushendun.i Linkback:
