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. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1414/
