What is meant by 'old mountain'?, one may ask. Names of this type usually refer to the fact that a place was cleared for agricultural exploitation at an early date and acquired their name when activity shifted to a new area.   Shanlieve is the 246th highest place in Ireland.

The eastern Mournes viewed from Shanlieve.From the right, Slieve Binnian, Slievelamagan, Slieve Donard behind, Cove mountain, the dam at Ben Crom reservoir ,Slieve Commedagh behind, Doan, and Slieve Muck. This picture was taken while competing the the Mourne 2 day marathon in September 2004 - for anyone thinking of doing it keep weight to an absolute minimum and make very sure you can use a map and compass in bad weather.The ground in this part of the Mournes is very soft and boggy ,it really drains your energy. We finished the course but missed the cutoff on day 2 so it looks like we'll have to try again next year. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/236/comment/1235/

An unspectacular summit in the nw mournes. Has good views from the top. Our approach was Crotlieve, the Ulster Way and Castle Bog (be prepared for wet feet). Time taken about 7.5 hours including stops. Photo of NW Mournes, Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/236/comment/735/

Approached from Eagle Mountain, this is approx. 500 metres to the south west and involves very little climbing. Good views open up to the south and the Cooleys. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/236/comment/1977/
