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 549th highest place in Ireland.

The summit of Slieveanorra definitely isn’t a wilderness experience. For a start it has two masts on it with associated buildings and it also has two roads. From the top a metalled road leads SE, whilst a well maintained dirt track leads NE. I approached it from the main road at D144277 starA (the NE side).

From the summit there is a good view of the windfarm on Slievenahanagan, some 5 or 6 km to the SW. At the summit there is a small ring of stones, overshadowed by the modern high tech structures. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/440/comment/930/
