The hill derives its name from a cairn at the summit. Ériu is a sovereignty goddess embodying Ireland. Éire is the Modern Irish form of this name. See Arderin in Slieve Bloom, which has a similar origin. Unfortunately, the cairn is overgrown and the formerly excellent view of Lough Neagh has been totally blocked by newly planted conifers. Tobernaveen Hill is a slightly lower hill to the west. Carnearny is recorded in the Annals of the Four Masters as the site of a battle in 912 AD where the local chieftain Loingsech Ua Lethlobhair (Lawlor) was defeated by Niall, son of Aedh Finnliath of Tyrone [LNP].   Carnearny is the 1108th highest place in Ireland. Carnearny is the most southerly summit in the Antrim Hills area.

Climbed, if that is the right word for an ascent on forestry tracks, to Carnearny's summit the same day i climbed Slemish, Douglas top, Big Collin & Divis. There is no view from the summit, the trees are to mature now for that now, the track had also been churned up by trail bikes, so not advisable in your new trainers! Also the parking place marked on the map appears to be blocked now, there is however space for 2 cars at 176923 A, which is also the access point for the forest. Follow this track, tack the first right after 450 metres, and right again after another 100 metres, where this track ends on the map (177925 B) a churned up track goes left & climbs up to the summit trig point (not marked on the current map). Best combined with several other hills to give a full day out. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/933/comment/3349/
