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 1382th highest place in Ireland.

northern summit
by slemish  16 Apr 2010
I had previously claimed on MV that the summit of Cross Slieve was on private farmland. This advice had been given to me by a Cushendall resident and I never thought to question it. Thanks to Harry Goodman's efforts however we have discovered that Cross Slieve is actually very accessible. For the sake of variety, I decided to climb to the northern 'second summit' which is only a few metres lower than the 206m main summit - although the whole summit area of Cross Slieve is so flat it makes very little difference. I parked at the bottom of the access path to the mobile phone transmitter on the Layde road between Cushendall and Knocknacarry (245305 C). From here you go up the path and into the field behind the transmitter. Climb over the farm gate at the back of this field and you will see a small lake known as Ellen's Lough ahead. The 203m summit is just to the left of this lake. Great views from here up Glenballyeamon towards Lurigethan, Trostan, Tievebulliagh and Slieveanorra. Looking out to sea, you can easily pick out the Scottish coast and various isles across the North Channel. If visiting the area be sure to take in the nearby ancient ruins of Layde church and the little 'fairy-hill' of Tieveragh on the southern side of Cross Slieve. Like Slemish, this is an extinct volcanic plug and from the south looks just like a miniature version of Lurigethan which it directly faces. I returned to the car by way of ascent. This is a very easy walk - I was up and down in less than 20 minutes. Linkback:
