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 345th highest in Ireland.

The Pilgrims Path less travelled
by madfrankie  23 Jan 2019
The Pilgrims Path which starts from near Teelin (the path is well sign-posted from the village) is an interesting approach to the SE Top, and would be more lauded were it not for the more spectacular cliff-hugging route from Bunglass Point.
From the car park (about 6 spaces) the track ascends the valley, passing Croleavy Lough, before angling right (northwest), and eventually petering out 500m from the summit. Splashes of yellow paint on rocks give some help with route-finding in mist. From here it's a straightforward walk to the broad top, a couple of 'highest point' candidates available. There is a cairn-shelter (filled with snow at time of visit), but this is not the actual summit.
A few steps south will reveal jaw-dropping, gob-smacking views while to the west the main summit lies beyond a narrowing ridge.
A return by the same route should take about 2 hours total. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1416/comment/20346/
