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 1036th highest in Ireland.

Rain on the way!

After cycling the 75 mile Tour De Lough Corrib what do you do but bag some nearby hills?
Followed bryanmccabe's excellent directions and made it to the top in slightly damper conditions which hindered the fine views.
Rather boggy climb but up and down in hour and a half as was getting cold and wet. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/888/comment/6358/
