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.

Majestic Scenery

Myself and my hiking partner Martin King finally got the perfect weather to hike Sliabh Liag and it's certainly a truly great hike along the ridge. Going back as far as the Trig Point presents a spectacular series of stunning picture-postcard settings. Benbulben, Achill Island, Portacloy Cliffs, Horn Head at Dunfanaghy, Mount Errigal and Donegal Bay all merge into one kaleidoscope of stunning scenery.

We had a nice chat in the lower carpark with legendary hiker John McGroary, the highly respected owner of Donegal-based John's Ireland Hiking Tours. John definitively stated that the exposed knife edge rib of rock on Keeringear is not One Man's Pass. There are several videos on YouTube showing individuals walking along this steep, dangerous, uneven section of the cliff face. Caution is certainly advised if attempting this and as we there having a look at the steep incline, the wind was certainly getting stronger.

One Man's Pass is much further along the ridge and offers up some astounding scenery. It's narrow in parts but is definitely navigable with one or two sections requiring a little extra caution and care. Overall we were eternally lucky to hike this amazing landscape on a beautiful sunny hot July day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1416/comment/23596/
