The name Keeringear is from Ir. na Círíní Gearra, ‘the sharp crests’ and refers to the sharpest part of the ridge, leading up to this peak from the east.   Sliabh Liag (mullach thoir theas) is the second highest mountain in the Donegal SW area and the 348th highest in Ireland.

Broad, rocky top with no distinct summit point.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  27 May 2019
This is usually bagged while on the way to Slieve League itself. Follow the well-trodden track from the car park to the south at G557 757 starA. You can then continue along the cliff top after Cnockrawer or take the safer option of turning NE for about 500m until you meet the Pilgrim's Path, which will take you virtually to the top. The precise summit is difficult to identify, especially in mist. The top is a long, broad rocky area with a number of stone markers (some of them distinctly odd). A GPS would be a definite help if you want to be accurate. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1416/comment/18044/
