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.

A high starting point
Short Summary created by scapania, jackill  26 Jan 2011
Park in the large car park at the Connor pass.
Cross the main road and head due east uphill following a distinct track for 200 meters, leave this track as it swing sharply south and continue uphill and east, skirting cliffs to your left side.
These are steep cliffs, so keep some distance from them.
You will come to a small semicircle of stones at about 620 mtrs elevation , pick up a low stone wall and follow it to the unmarked summit about 400 meters to the east. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/242/comment/5002/
