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 1060th highest in Ireland.

Knocknasilloge
by Jamessheerin  28 Sep 2022
Well worth the effort; this hill is off the beaten track but has great views of the usual suspects in Connemara - the Bens & Turks, from an unusual angle. Going off road at L99296 40127 starA, heading SE to the summit of Lackadunna (317m). Several false tops over good ground on the way. The trig point (in great condition) at Knocknasilloge (346m) is a further 850m to the NE over boggy ground. Rounded off the morning by doing several more tops to the NW, coming back to the road at L99675 40297 starB. Something to watch out for on top - an immense standing stone (glacial erratic). An honour to be the first to log this one for Mountain Views! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/903/comment/6203/
