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.

Great views of Brandon and Lakes

I came from the east across from Croaghskearda/Cnapan Mor. The route across is boggy but not difficult and mainly grassy bog.

You could incorporate Cnapan Mor into a loop from the Conor Pass Car Park or a more strenuous route from the north.

The views down to Pedlar's lake from Slieveanea are stunning, but take care on a windy day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/242/comment/18886/
