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 Midlands area and the 1109th highest in Ireland.

Fills your heart with glahness.

Slieve Glah is a small, but visible hill south of Cavan town near the village of Crosskeys. The map suggests two access tracks, but I could only find the start of the more convoluted longer track.
It's twenty minutes up to the telecoms masts, and as Paddyhillsbagger says, plenty of gorse near the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/932/comment/6084/
