There are two similar, but slightly different, anglicised forms of the name of this peak: Slievekeeragh, which appears on Discovery sheet 3, suggests an Irish name ending in -ach, perhaps Sliabh Caorach, 'mountain of sheep'. The other name, Slieve Keerogue Little, was recorded on the 1st edition OS 6" to the mile map, and suggests Sliabh Ciaróg, 'mountain of the beetles'. Slieve Keeroge is recorded as an alternative name for Raghtin More, the higher peak to the NW.   Slievekeeragh is the 978th highest place in Ireland.

Great views from the top
by Garmin  21 May 2014
Started walk at a farm track C 358 447 B where there is parking for one car. Followed track to c 354 446 C before striking out for the summit. Great views from the top of the Ragtin Beg - Urris Hills line of peaks running NE to SW. There are also fine views of Bulbin and Slieve Snaght
