This is a shoulder of Blackstairs Mountain lying completely in Co. Wexford. Note that there is another hill of this name NW of Mount Leinster, though it is spelt Slievebawn in English.   Slievebaun is the 754th highest place in Ireland.

Tag it on to a more challenging walk.

If this hill had not been listed in MV's I would not have sought it out and only did so as an extension of a walk over Blackstairs Mt from the Scullogue Gap to Knockymullgurry. From Caher Roe's Den rather than drop down SSW directly to the Cooliagh Gap we headed down ESE and out across the trackless long grassy expanse of the Bantry Commons before climbing up to the shallow saddle below Slievebaun. From here there was a short gentle climb up SSW to the unmarked grassy summit . On the day we were there the hillside was a hive of activity for a number of Quads but with little evidence of any damage being done to the ground. After a short break we headed down W to cross a stream in a deep little culvert before heading uo to the saddle below Blackstairs Mt. and Carrigalachan at S796432 starC. From here we walked about 100 metres W down the good track to where an old wall/ditch went off at a right angle. Leaving the track we followed the line of the wall down N for some 2.5 km to our finishing point at Knockymullgurry at S7924345051 starD. Although the map shows a track all the way down this can be intermittent and in places very rough. Where the wall swings NW S795449 starE we then had to negotiate a trackless way through some small fields and much boggy ground to reach the road and our cars at Knockymullgurry. Good luck !
