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 1112th highest in Ireland.

Deep in the Cavan countryside

Parked at a farmyard on the South East side of the hill. Met a friendly young guy, the land owners son I assume and he showed us the way to access the hill at H47142 00418 A. It's a farm track that is also used as a Vodaphone access road that leads to the masts at the top of the hill. At the start this does not even look like a road that vehicles could access, it really is more of a field but rest assured this is the way up. The trig point is about 100 metres behind the masts. This is trickier to get to than you would expect. At the masts I went to the right to circle the compound. Do not do this, unless you want to fight through chest high briars and furs and even a wire fence covered in furs. Hop a wall on the left hand side of the masts, your body will thank you for it!
