Slieve Felim / Sliabh Eibhlinne is the name of a range. Nowadays the name it is often used to refer just to those hills south of the Newport-Rear Cross road, but it once denoted a much larger area. John O'Donovan described as stretching north to Silvermines and east to Dundrum. This means that it included Keeper Hill, Mauherslieve and the Silver Mine Mountains. The earliest reference to this name is in the Annals of Inisfallen, 531 A.D., 'Bellum Eblinne'. The female name Eibhlinn (the name of a goddess) seems to have been confused with the male name Feidhlim, perhaps because Eibhlinn is not used as a name in modern Irish, and Feidhlim was more familiar. Feidhlim was the name of three early kings of Munster. Previously Sliabh Eibhlinne as principal name in MV.   Slieve Felim is the 812th highest place in Ireland.
