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.

Like others before hand we did the two trail strategy, In via the Bangor and out via the western way, Just three small things to add. 1. A route up from the bangor trail is to climb up via the waterfall to the lakes which are on the saddle between Nephin Beg and Slieve Carr. Starting point for this is F91640 11025 I. 2.On the descent to the forest there is now a wooden steps to the gap between different coloured trees marked at roughly I on the map, this than leads to track that leads to western way. When descending from Slieve Carr via lake no. 389 and the colls watch out for the line between the coloured trees as it is hard to spot this gap from above. 3. When you pass the Mountain shelter on the track heading for the western way don't forget to sign the visitors book. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/94/comment/16110/
