The anglicised form Slievanea would appear to derive from Ir. Sliabh an Fhia, 'mountain of the deer'. The deer is also an important symbol in Celtic mythology. In many tales they lure people into the realm of the gods. Remains of several fulachta fia (venison-cooking pits) can be found around Lough Adoon.
Sliabh Mhacha Ré is the 241st highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/242/
