On Tim Robinson's map of Connemara, Seanadh Bhéara (Shannavara) only appears as a townland name. This hill is named Cnoc Úraid. A legend predicts that Cnoc Úraid / Oorid Hill will be the site of the last battle for Christianity. [TR]   Seanadh Bhéara is the highest hill in the South Connemara area and the 1035th highest in Ireland.

Access Issues
by TommyV  14 Aug 2017
I was bagging a few hills in the South Connemara on Saturday 12th August. Shannavara was to be my 4th hill of the day. I followed bryanmccabe's directions and met the landowner who was out and about. I asked if it was okay to access the hill through his property (expecting a friendly yes as bryanmccabe had no issues). Instead I was surprisingly met with a friendly no. The farmer was very friendly and explained that he has had issues with walkers bringing dogs onto the land and leaving gates open.There was also a case where one walker hurt his ankle on the farmers property and tried to unsuccessfully to sue the farmer. Due to these reasons the farmer has imposed a blanket ban on walkers accessing the hill through his farm. I just wanted to let the hill walker community know that this is no longer an option to access Shannvara. Does anybody know if the route mentioned by Sandman is still an option?
