The name Sliabh Níadh is mentioned in Buile Shuibhne, the 12th century narrative known in English as The Frenzy of Suibne or The Madness of Sweeeny. Another line in Buile Shuibhne refers to Sliabh na nEach, 'mountain of the steeds', which may be a variant name for the same mountain, although this is further away from the modern anglicised form.   Slievenanee is the second highest mountain in the Antrim Hills area and the 435th highest in Ireland. Slievenanee is the second highest point in county Antrim.

If you were visiting you would probably summit Slievenanee immediately before or after Trostan, which means that you will walk the boggy land in between. Certainly the day that I was there this was comparable to one of the worst parts of Wicklow, with deeply cut, eroded bog and stretches of jelly-peat. Quite unlike Wicklow however is the pristine nature of the area. This is pure: natural vegetation alteration caused by climate change. The photo shows part of Slievenanee. At no point on it were there any signs whatever of footprints. Unlike Trostan, the summit does not have an area where the bog has completely eroded.
