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.

Regarding the " substantial track running for about 7km to the east indicated on the OS map ... [which starts] at the end of a narrow road/track at 866 073 A G ... which seems to cross the Owenduff River soon after the parking spot " I would very strongly advise everybody to avoid this.

This ancient "track" is lethal and has not been maintained for decades. It leads you into very deep and potentially very wet blanket bog. Honestly, don't even think about it. I am not kidding when I say you'd be putting your life at risk. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/94/comment/17740/
