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 1040th highest in Ireland.

New Comment: Low lying but definitely worth the bog slog!
by markmjcampion  Sat 21 Nov
I accessed this hill from the south a few years back (around sept 2017) having done a car split earlier in the day. We met the farmer mentioned elsewhere and got a bit of a mouthful from him on access issues and the general blot on the landscape that are hillwalkers! So, it's probably best to follow Bryan's route from L93083 45004 A or to double back on the route from the south. That said, the farmer was long in the tooth and may either relent in his dotage or forget to proscribe access in his will! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/888/comment/21481/
