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 1445th highest place in Ireland. Cnoc na Sleá is the second most northerly summit in the Donegal NW area.

'...and I don't have a gun...'
by Peter Walker  13 Mar 2011
I took the convoluted (but gorgeous) drive up Rosguill before parking at Rosses Strand (also ravishing...let's overlook all those derelict mobile homes by the side of the access road...you guys really do tend to take fly tipping to another level, don't you?). Along the beach and up the re-entrant (improving path the higher you get, a bit brambly at the bottom), turn right at the col and alongside the fence to the summit...a viewpoint entirely out of proportion with its height and required effort.

But the biting wind, the vicious little hailstorm and the glorious panorama aren't what will render Crocknasleigh unique in my memory...because it's the only hill where I've ever found a gun target. About three quarters of the way up the re-entrant, lopsided and flapping in the breeze. It was obviously used (and recently...I can't imagine the elements would leave something so flimsy in place for the long term...at least it didn't look like live ammo had been involved); can anyone shed any light on why it was there? Is humble Crocknasleigh actually the secret Irish training complex for Chelsea FC? Or am I deeply English (and therefore naive)? Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1047/comment/6271/
