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.

to be perfectly honest - I think this view is near to perfection. 9 out of ten for me. It combines forestry with mountains, lowland, lough neagh and even 4 counties can be seen from here. Although it is not well known it will always stick in my mind. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/933/comment/3532/
