So named, according to Harris (author of The Antient and Present State of the County of Down), because it has to be climbed in a crawling position. The southern slopes are, indeed, relentlessly steep. An alternative name, Sliabh Snámháin, has the same meaning. Below Lamagan Slabs is a spot called Percy Bysshe, which suggests a connection with the poet Shelley.   Slievelamagan is the 109th highest place in Ireland.

Slieve Donard dominates the skyline in this mellowing October picture re-appearing as an inverted ghost in the reedy water of Cove Lough.

This unusual photo vantage point is from the north-east of the summit of Lamagan near the area marked as Lower Cove. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/106/comment/1290/
