Cnoc na Sleá is the modern Irish form. Arguably the Classical Irish form Cnoc na Sleighe is more faithful to the pronunciation.   Cnoc na Sleá is the 1443th highest place in Ireland. Cnoc na Sleá is the second most northerly summit in the Donegal NW area.

Melmore Head Loop Walk
by ucampbell  30 Jul 2019
I confess I didn't make it to the Summit. I did a 10km walk around Melmore Head from the Hostel carpark. I walked along the road and beaches up to Melmore then climbed up and around the headland to the Murder Hole beach. I then climbed upwards from here in an attempt to gain the ridge however it hadn't been part of my original plan so I turned back and I kept lower. The views from all aspects are stunning.
