Finlieve is a southern shoulder of Shanlieve / Eagle Mountain. The name is locally pronounced without the final consonant, as witnessed by the anglicised form Finley on James Williamson’s map of Co. Down (1810). The name Fionnshliabh, like Seanshliabh (Shanlieve), is linguistically notable as one of a small group of mountain names consisting of close compounds. In this case the adjective fionn, ‘white, fair’, is combined with sliabh, ‘mountain’.   Finlieve is the 340th highest place in Ireland.

Finlieve, the white mountain
by cmcv10  16 Jul 2022
I started at Leitrim Lodge car park, went up past Pierce's Castle and clambered over to the Shanlieve side of Batt's Wall.
After passing Shanlieve's summit cairn I headed south to Finlieve. It was a humid day in the midst of a period of warm weather which made the terrain very dry apart from some muddy parts in the peat banks between Shanlieve and Finlieve.
I reached Finlieve's modest summit within an hour of leaving Shanlieve. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1414/comment/23588/
