Also known as Slieve Cor or Corslieve. The Discovery map links the name Corslieve with a neighbouring peak (541m) situated about 3 miles to the south, but the Ordnance Survey Name Book and William Bald's map of Mayo (1830) show quite clearly that it is simply an alternative for Slieve Carr, with the same elements inverted. A cairn on the summit is named Laghtdauhybaun on the old ½ inch map, but is unnamed on the Discovery map. This is probably derived from Ir. Leacht Dáithí Bháin, 'burial monument of white Dáithí'. There may be a connection with Dáithí, a king of Connacht and reputed last pagan high-king of Ireland (see Slieve Alp).   Slieve Carr is the second highest mountain in the North Mayo area and the 97th highest in Ireland.

Possible with Nephin Beg in a day
by jimgraham  11 May 2013
Just to note that I found it possible to combine Slieve Carr with Nephin Beg. Working from the southern end of the Bangor trail (point F) it took me four hours to gain the top of Carr; about two hours up the trail, an hour gaining the fairly easy col between Carr and Nephin Beg, and an hour to the top. Five hours back to the car via the top of Nephin Beg, working the eastern side of the col, that is east of Scardaun Loughs. A hard walk on a nice day, but well worth it.

There are incidentally notices on the Bangor Trail that there is a (presumably significant) footbridge down further north towards Bangor on the trail. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/94/comment/14989/
