The Battle of Orra, between the McQuillans and McDonnells, took place on this mountain in 1559. The McQuillans were Lords of the Route and the dominant clan of the region. The McDonnells were a family originating from Scotland who usurped the McQuillans' castles and land.   Slieveanorra is the 545th highest place in Ireland.

Short Summary created by slemish  18 Nov 2010
Slieveanorra is one of the most accessible of the Antrim Hills since its summit can be reached via gravel tracks. The easiest route up follows the Moyle Way south-west from the car park on the well-signposted Orra scenic route (D144277 A) whilst the much longer option is to approach fom the south through the vast Slieveanorra forest. This mountain is well positioned for long views to the Scottish coast and various isles as well as the Sperrins and the rest of the Antrim hills. The summit area is spoilt somewhat by the presence of two huge masts which are very much an eyesore. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/440/comment/5199/
