Slieve Glah, near Cavan Town, is the highest point in Central Co. Cavan. It has fine views Lough Sheelin, Lough Gowna, Lough Oughter and Upper Lough Erne. There is a Giant's Grave on Slieve Glah; and a big stone at Lavey two miles east is said to have been thrown by the Slieve Glah giant at his brother in Lavey (Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa', p. 174).   Slieve Glah is the second highest hill in the North East Midlands area and the 1110th highest in Ireland.

Picture: Reluctant Calfs Slieve Glah
 
Strong Calves required
by eamonoc  2 Nov 2013
Thursday 31/10/2013. Using comments from Mt Views for directions I arrived at the access track for Slieve Glah, got out of car and met a local farmer, he was about to let a herd of calfs out of a field just across the road from the access path and into a field beside the access path. I spoke to him and he asked me to help him get the calfs across the road, so I duly obliged. when the cattle were safely across the road and into the field, the farmer told me there was no problem with climbing this hill. It took about 20mins on a good path to climb Slieve Glah, the trig point is uphill behind the masts. Headed back to car and onto Bruse Hill.
