The OS 6 map shows the name Knocknasilloge. This is confirmed by the draft place-names order for Gaeltacht areas. Shannawona is a townland name, but one clearly derived from a hill name (Ir. Seanadh means 'slope', and it is also widely used as the name of this area of hilly moorland. Leaca Donna / Lackadunna is the name of a lower peak about 1km SW of the summit.   Cnoc na Saileog is the third highest hill in the South Connemara area and the 1057th highest in Ireland.

New Comment: A lesser visited hill.
by TommyV  29 Oct 2018
Access to this hill is through a farm at L99785 40248 A. I was lucky enough to meet the farmer and his family just as I parked my car. I asked for permission and the farmer happily walked me through his sheds and pointed me in the right direction. Once through the gate at L99877 40241 B, head South for Lackadunna for some fine views. From here Knocknasilloge is about a kilometer away to the East. It's a relatively short walk by Connemara standards but the views are up there with the big boys of the region. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/903/comment/20102/
